The History Department at Queen’s is home to a community of world-recognized scholars whose research and curiosity span the globe.
Our faculty are equally dedicated to the classroom and have received multiple awards for teaching and mentoring. A uniquely-structured undergraduate program puts majors into challenging seminar classes from second year on, while offering all students, whatever their major, an exciting variety of general-interest courses exploring most regions of the world and ranging in time from the middle ages to yesterday. The M.A. and Ph.D. program, large for a university of our size, has traditionally been a top training ground for historians of Canada and the British empire. Today, it also boasts dynamic research clusters in global history, the history of gender and sexuality, intellectual and legal history, the history of race, and medieval history.
