Graduate Program

Graduate students
Graduate students Matt Miskulin and Sydney Cunliffe take advantage of the activities living in Victoria has to offer.

The History department has a major graduate program built around a cadre of approximately 60 students, 34 regular faculty members and 29 emeritus/adjunct professors.  Fifty six of our students have won SSHRC scholarships in the last decade.  Since 2000 faculty members have been awarded $5 million in research grants. Graduates of our Master’s program have gone on to build handsome careers in government, law, private enterprise, research and academia.  Alumni of our doctoral program are currently teaching at universities and colleges throughout Canada.

Victoria is home to the BC Archives and the Royal BC Museum and offers a spectacular physical location for Canada’s most westerly graduate program.
