Discover the Past - Create Our Future

History students at the University of Guelph earn one of the most versatile degrees available working with some of Canada's top historians and researchers. More and more, professions and professional schools look for young people with broad training, adaptable skills and clear judgment, rather than a narrow field of training. Our graduates are flexible, intelligent, polished communicators, researchers and problem solvers who follow their passions in business, law, education, civil service, education, journalism and the arts.
