|History helps us make sense of today’s headlines, from conflict in the Middle East to the challenges facing the Christian church in Western society. But history also helps us step outside our own time and learn from another, as we immerse ourselves in ancient Rome, medieval England, or the totalitarian struggles of the early twentieth century. Redeemer's History program studies history from a perspective rooted in unchanging biblical truth and ancient Christian wisdom.
Right from the start, small class sizes allow for meaningful class discussion, led by professors who are actively researching in the field and excited to include students in their work. First-year courses lay a broad foundation in the origins and development of major world civilizations, culminating in the world wars and increasing global interconnectedness of the twentieth century. Upper-level courses tackle specific topics in European, Middle Eastern, North American, African, Chinese history, as well as themes like law and totalitarian regimes. Our program prepares students to pursue professional careers as teachers, lawyers, public servants and more, as well as to contribute to their communities as informed citizens and church members.
History is a Bachelor of Arts degree program. It is offered as an honours major, major and as a minor.
