Extended Deadlines for Grad Applications

Thinking About Grad School in History?  

Prospective Graduate Students for Sept. 2013:

We will continue to accept applications on an ongoing basis.

UVic's History Department is described by external reviewers as one of the best in the country and the university has consistently ranked in the top two Canadian comprehensive universities for the past six years (MacLean’s). UVic is the top-ranked Canadian university (without a medical school) in the Times Higher Education’s 2011 World University Rankings. 

The department offers both a one-year course work and a two-year thesis MA option.  The department includes 33 historians, with national and international reputations.   We are particularly strong in a range of subjects in Canadian history and in early modern and modern Britain and Europe, and also have considerable strength in American, World and Asian history.  The department also offers particular expertise in Indigenous, military, digital and public history.  Among the course options available are three field schools (Ethnohistory with the Stó:lõ; the Holocaust Field School; The Colonial Legacies Field School: South Africa to the 21st Century); other options include Co-op (which alternates school and work terms) and a congruent Diploma in Cultural Heritage Studies for those interested in museum or heritage work.
