O que eu aprenderei?

The study of history allows us to recognize and understand the complex issues that shaped the contemporary world. The History Department offers courses in African, American, Asian, Canadian, Caribbean, European, Latin American and South Asian history. Some courses trace the history of social, political and cultural change of a region or period. Others are thematic and may examine women’s history, the histories of science, sexuality, food and drink, or slavery. In first year, history students may choose a small seminar class or a larger lecture course with a tutorial group. Both formats foster debate and discussion. All history courses encourage student research which may draw on the rich array of libraries and archives in the national capital, including Carleton’s own valuable collections and resources.

The Bachelor of Arts (General) in History requires a total of 15.0 credits and is usually completed in three years. Seven of these credits must be History credits in specified fields and levels. This Bachelor of Arts (BA) provides a sound understanding of the discipline for those who plan to enter employment upon graduation.

The BA (Honours) program provides intensive study at a more advanced level. This BA requires 20.0 credits, normally completed in four years of full-time study. Ten of these credits must be in History.

The BA (Combined Honours) program allows you to major in two disciplines. Students can engage in intensive study of both history and another field such as political science, law or English. In addition to completing 6.0 required credits in History, you must also fulfill the requirements of the second discipline. You may also choose to combine your studies in History with a minor in another discipline. The minor usually requires 4.0 credits. A minor in History is available to those majoring in other disciplines.

Future opportunities

History graduates have critical skills and the ability to contextualize problems. They are trained in research and analysis, and as a result, they possess the ability to express opinions clearly, concisely and persuasively. Their training in history makes them ideal candidates for many employers.

Carleton’s History program can prepare students for careers in private business, community development, international development, education, government and non-governmental agencies, political consulting, journalism, library sciences, law, broadcast media and more.
