Program Information

School:York University - Glendon Campus
Degree:Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study:History, General
Description:The History program aims to give students the opportunity to explore the human experience in different times and places, at the same time helping them to master research, critical reading, thinking and writing skills in both of Canada's official languages. Students look at past events of various countries and regions from different perspectives, trying to connect those events in meaningful ways. Because understanding is a pre-condition for purposeful action, it is necessary for students to grasp how politics, society, culture, and economics have developed and changed throughout history in order to make sense of our contemporary world.
History is an innovative and dynamic discipline. Studying history helps to develop critical thinking, research, problem-solving, and communication skills, as well as the ability to produce evidence-based arguments. History also creates 'an appreciation of the complexity and diversity of situations, events, and mentalities of the past.' All are transferable skills and knowledge that are crucial for the job market of the 21st century, and history provides an understanding of the past essential for an informed and engaged citizenry. A degree in history prepares you for varied careers as a teacher, librarian, lawyer, public servant, documentary filmmaker, journalist, writer, editor, diplomat, museum curator, administrator in the cultural, heritage, and education sectors, archivist, and more.
