Program Information

School: MacEwan University
Faculty: Faculty of Arts & Science
Degree: Bachelor
Field of Study: History, General
Description: Historians craft history, make history, do history, and record history. History is exciting! It deals with anything and everything; from the daily life of a peasant to the history of ideas to diplomacy and conflict, from the ancient Aztecs to conflict in Afghanistan. History has few thematic borders and is eclectic in its choice of research methods. Specialized history courses cover such diverse topics as crime in early modern Europe, diplomacy and conflict in the modern world, policy related to Aboriginal people in Canada and many others.

History students learn about the world. They work out how to make sense of the present by investigating the past. They discover how people and societies behave and how they change. They locate facts and uncover concepts. In the process, these master detectives become skilled and valued communicators who know how to gather and organize information, how to analyze complex issues, and how to explain their findings clearly and coherently.
