VIII. Graduate Programs
History - Tri-University Program
The Departments of History of the University of Guelph, the University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University offer a joint program leading to the MA and PhD degrees. The Tri-University Graduate Program in History includes members from all three departments covering a wide range of research interests. It is a semi-autonomous program responsible directly to the three graduate schools. It looks after admissions, arranges courses of instruction, names students' advisory committees, and monitors student progress generally. Students in the Tri-University Graduate Program in History register either at Guelph, Waterloo or Wilfrid Laurier (depending on where their advisor is located) but undertake their course work jointly at all three universities. Students in the program are governed by the general regulations of the university in which they are registered and their degree is granted by that university.
The department at Guelph also participates in the Interdepartmental Group on Scottish Studies, in the work of the Centre for International Programs, and the Historical 1891 Canadian Census Project. As well, the History Department at Guelph has formed, with the History Department of the University of Waterloo, a Consortium for Reformation Studies. Students are encouraged to begin their studies in the fall or winter semesters. All applications, with requests for financial support, must be received by the Tri-University Graduate Program secretary in completed form by February 1.
