As a graduate student in our history department, you’ll explore the impact of historic events across time. Our research areas range from racism and Indigenous history to early modern Europe and the history of crime.

Our faculty members often explore non-traditional ways of conducting and communicating research, including the use of geographic information systems and digital media. You can also choose to build your knowledge across disciplines through our interdisciplinary concentration in cultural, social and political thought.
