IX. 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 PhD program is offered in the following fields:

  • Canadian History

  • Scottish History

  • War and Society

  • World History

  • Medieval History

  • Early Modern European History

  • Modern European History

  • Cold War History

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 Centre for Scottish Studies and the Historical Data Research Unit. Students are encouraged to begin their studies in the Fall or Winter semesters. Program offices should be consulted for submission deadlines.
