Apply Your Learning
Make the most out of your university career by taking advantage of all that Laurier has to offer you. Volunteer work, campus clubs, leadership programs, studying abroad, work experience – there are so many ways you can extend your classroom experience into the real world.
Here are just a few examples of the experiences you’ll have access to in the History program:
- As part of the course HI323: Memory, Monuments, and Museums, you'll participate in a placement with a local heritage organization. You'll work alongside professionals and volunteers in the heritage community and develop public history skills and networks.
- Students enrolled in HI240: The Active Historian, will learn to curate an original museum exhibition and will organize an public history event.
- This program hosts a biannual People Make History lecture series, which brings the participant of a major historic event to campus to share their story. You are invited to meet with the speaker in small groups and learn from their experiences.
- Become a leader by joining the Brantford Campus History Students' Association (HSA), and help organize events and mentor incoming students.
