Our Master of Arts (MA) in History program is part of the Tri-University Graduate Program in History, a partnership of Laurier, the University of Waterloo and the University of Guelph. The integration of history departments makes this program one of the biggest graduate history programs in Canada, while retaining the small classes and supportive professor-student relationship associated with History at Laurier.

We are deeply committed to teaching and to your scholarly development. You’ll take part in great discussions with faculty and your colleagues in seminars designed for MA students only. The classes you will attend will never have more than 12 students.

The Thesis option includes four seminar courses and a thesis with an oral defence.


Additional Admission Requirements:
  • Letter(s) of Reference
  • Statement of Research Interests
  • Portfolio
Applicants are required to have a four-year honours undergraduate degree (or equivalent) in history or a related field with a minimum B+ average in the last 10 full credits of undergraduate study. Applications are reviewed by the graduate program committee, which considers all prior university grades, statement of interest, a writing sample and letters of reference.
