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.



Congratulations to Dr. Laura Carlson for receiving this year’s W.J. Barnes Teaching award for excellence in teaching.  This award is presented by the Arts & Science Undergraduate Society and considered by them the highest tribute.
