Program Information

School:University of Guelph - Office of Graduate Studies
Field of Study:History, General
Description:The Departments of History of the University of Guelph, the University of Waterloo, and Wilfrid Laurier University offer a joint program leading to the Master of Arts. The Tri-University Graduate Program in History includes members from all three Departments covering a wide range of research interests.

Graduates from our universities have pursued careers in business and law, politics, journalism, government service, teaching, museums, and archives, to name only some of the general areas in which History graduates may be found. Some students choose a graduate program in History for no other reason than that they enjoy the study of history and realize that it can enhance their understanding of themselves and the world in which they live. For others, the Tri-University M.A. in history may also be seen as an opportunity to test their ability in a graduate program or to see if they have an interest in pursuing a Ph.D. degree, or perhaps through a Teaching Assistantship to sample the experience of participating in the teaching of university-level courses.
