Bachelor of Arts in History

Historians record history, craft history, and make history. 

The past is an exciting place! 

This discipline ranges across time and space, from the daily life of peasants to the history of ideas and institutions, from Aztec art to war in Afghanistan. 

History has few thematic borders and is eclectic in its choice of research methods. 

Specialized history courses cover such diverse topics as crime in early modern Europe, diplomacy and conflict in the modern world, policy related to Indigenous people in Canada, and many others.

In the first two years, you develop foundational competencies in reading, writing and critical analysis. 

Survey courses introduce momentous events and pressing issues across a fascinating array of regions and time periods in order to build contextual knowledge and interpretive skills. 

Whether in lecture or discussion, you have the opportunity to ask questions, exchange viewpoints and develop your own voice.

At the senior level, small, interactive seminars reflect the research specialties of MacEwan's approachable and award-winning faculty.
