Description:The undergraduate program in History at Queen's provides students with exciting opportunities to critically explore the roots of contemporary societies throughout the world. Examining a variety of historical periods, places, and peoples, scholars in the department offer a broad range of courses that reflect a diverse mixture of methodologies, theories, and approaches. The department is proud of its reputation for excellence in undergraduate teaching. At the same time, the quality of the pedagogical environment in the department is enhanced by the research records of individuals who have earned national and international reputations.

History courses at Queen's are divided into two types: lecture courses and seminars. Lecture courses are large (enrollment varying from 100-200 students). Lectures introduce students to the broad contours of historical inquiry. History minors, medials, majors and students in other programs, are encouraged to take lecture courses at any time in second, third, or fourth year. Second-year core seminars and upper-year seminars form a fundamental and compulsory part of the program for students pursuing a BAH degree with a major or medial plan in History. Seminars are small, discussion-based classes of roughly 20 to 25 students. Seminars provide an opportunity to develop communication skills necessary to pursue the discipline at the graduate level. With their emphasis on developing speaking, research and writing skills, a history degree provides a sound preparation for careers in education, law, public service, journalism, and business.
