Program Overview

You get the best idea of where the world is going by knowing where it's been. In the Ambrose History degree program, you'll explore the diverse stories and identities that have made a lasting impact on Canadian society and the world at large. You'll learn the importance of perspective, context and research, and see how history plays a role in pop culture and everyday life. You'll apply your History degree as you think critically about what shapes history and what is shaped by it: politics, culture, society, and religion.

So here's the deal:

Take five courses per semester for four years, and you'll complete your History degree
[courses are worth 3 credits and 3 x 5 x 2 x 4 = 120 credits].

A three-year [90 credit] version of this degree is also available.

This is where you can go
