THE DEPARTMENT OF HISTORY consists of a dynamic group of active scholars and students engaged in cultivating knowledge and providing new appreciations of the past. Undergraduates are organized in the University of Guelph History Society, graduate students number more than forty active on campus at any one time, and postdoctoral scholars are integrated into the life of the Department.
History at Guelph offers undergraduate Honors majors and minors as well as an area of concentration to students in the General B.A. Program. The Department has also been providing high quality graduate instruction at the M.A. and Ph.D. levels for over four decades. Our graduates serve in diverse professions, with many employed at universities across Canada and around the world. Our faculty serves broad constituencies, but specializes in the social and cultural history of the transnational Atlantic world, its rural environments, and the migratory processes that have influenced identity formation and hybridity globally.
