Our Graduate Program in History is allied with the programs at Wilfrid Laurier University and the University of Waterloo, together known as the Tri-University Graduate Program in History. Students complete degrees from a home-base on one of the three campuses while having the option of taking classes and employing faculty advisors from any of the Tri-U campuses. Collectively, the Tri-University Graduate Program in History is the third largest history graduate program in Canada.

Tri-University History Conference 2013: New Approaches to History
March 23, 2013 - Best Western Hotel, 716 Gordon Street, Guelph
The Tri-University Conference is a wonderful opportunity for students and faculty to get to know each other, to share ideas, and debate the latest developments in our field. This year, the Tri-University conference will take place at the Best Western Hotel in Guelph. Attached is the preliminary programme which will also be available on the Tri-U website shortly. The theme this year is “New Approaches to History” and our keynote panel features three fantastic historians from the Tri-University campuses:
- Ian Milligan, a recent hire at the University of Waterloo, who writes on youth and labour in the 1960s, and new digital technologies, will give a paper on “Preparing for the Infinite Archive: Social Historians and the Looming Digital Deluge.”
- Amy Milne-Smith, the author of London Clubland: A Cultural History of Gender and Class in late-Victoria Britain (2011) will be speak on “Queensberry’s Misrule: Exploring honour, duty, and the gentleman in late-Victorian Britain.”
- Norman Smith, the author of Resisting Manchukuo: Chinese Women Writers and the Japanese Occupation (2007) will speak on “Sources, Souses and the Writing of Manchurian History.”
What our graduates say...
"I decided to come to Guelph for my PhD because the program addressed both teaching and research development among its students. The doctoral program at Guelph gives students a great balance of research, teaching, & professional experience -- an excellent preparation for the job market. Completing my degree at Guelph gave me the chance to work with world-class historians."
Heather Parker, Ph.D. (Guelph '12)
Editor (with Elizabeth Ewan and Jodi Campbell),
The Shaping of Scottish Identities: Family, Nation and the World Beyond (2011).
"The faculty and staff were so approachable and friendly in the Tri-University history program at Guelph. I felt like all of the professors really cared about my success and I really appreciated the support I received from the program. The helpful and challenging nature of the program was one of the reasons I decided to come back to Guelph to pursue further graduate studies."
Anne Vermeyden, M.A. (Guelph '11)
"My advisor and various members of the Department have provided me with a wide range of experiences which I think have been essential to securing a tenure track position (including teaching, service and research). My experience has been excellent and this is due to the opportunities provided by, and support offered from, the department and particularly my advisor."
Janay Nugent, M.A. (Guelph '97), Ph.D. (Guelph '05)
Assistant Professor, University of Lethbridge
"The professionalism of the department was exemplary, but so, too, were the generosity and thoughtfulness offered by faculty and staff. Being around these people was one of the true highlights of my education."
John Walsh, B.A., M.A. (University of Ottawa), Ph.D (Guelph '02)
Assistant Professor, Carleton University
"From the professors to the administrative staff, my experience at Guelph was truly two of the best years of my life.... I will have nothing but good words for the History department to anyone who asks, and should I decide to continue, I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else."
Jason Wilson, M.A. (Guelph '03)
