Overview

Bachelor of Arts - History

The study of History goes beyond memorizing dates, battles, and names—it examines the backstory of events, people, and society. It’s the study of the past and the development of the current social, cultural, and environmental realities.  

St. Thomas University offers one of the most ambitious undergraduate World History programs in Canada with a wide range of courses available at all levels of study. 

This program does not rely solely on texts—it uses music, film, art, maps, and objects to engage students in the study of History. 

Professors are historians who are energized and excited to explore new topics and learn collaboratively with students.

What sets STU’s History Program Apart? 

  • Small, engaging classes that emphasize personal interaction, discussion, and debate.
  • Students can take innovative thematic courses on topics like food, racism, sport, and citizenship.
  • Lectures are always taught by professors—not teaching assistants—which means students learn from experts in the field.
  • Upper-year students are given the opportunity to lead seminars on their research topics.
  • For-credit and extracurricular experiential learning opportunities are offered that connect with students’ academic and career ambitions.
  • Students benefit from faculty expertise in the US and comparative urban history, the global history of sport and tourism, Ethiopian and African history, race and racism, Germany and modern Europe, authoritarian politics, and citizenship and commodities.
