If you want to better comprehend what’s going on in the world today, you need to understand what has happened in the past. Today’s events do not occur in isolation — they are part of a continuity, a web of interconnected events around the world, stretching back through time. Studying history will give you a sense of our place in this timeline.
Our History program will provide you with a deeper and more informed perspective of the world we live in and the cultures that inhabit it. Get ready to delve into the past, whether it’s world, eastern, western, or American history. The program provides the first two years of a four-year curriculum if you wish to continue on to a four-year institution and specialize in history.
Going on for a bachelor’s or post-graduate degree in history can open the door to various fields, including post-secondary teaching, law, library and archival studies, and museum studies.
