History students choose from an exciting range of graduate seminars.

Queen’s Department of History offers two graduate degree programs: a Master of Arts (MA) with options to write a research essay or a thesis, and a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD). Students read cutting-edge scholarship and work with primary sources in small, graduate-only seminars, and have the opportunity to carry out research in a wide range of thematically and geographically-defined fields of inquiry. Queen’s has traditionally been a top training ground for historians of Canada and the British empire and is now home to dynamic research clusters in global, intellectual, gender, medieval, and postcolonial history.

Our students join a thriving intellectual community organized around seminar series and research networks convened by award-winning faculty members who have won recognition for their dedication to research as well as teaching. Our M.A. and Ph.D. students actively contribute to this community by hosting the McGill-Queen's Graduate History conference biannually, and by organizing international conferences in collaboration with our various research networks.
