Welcome to the Department of History

About Us

The History Department at Queen's University is dedicated to providing a rigourous and engaging seminar-based undergraduate education, top-flight training of MA and PhD students, and innovative, high-quality, wide-ranging research. We are a medium-sized department; small enough to preserve a sense of community, but large enough to offer a comprehensive range of graduate and undergraduate courses.
