Program Information

School: University of Victoria
Faculty: Humanities
Degree: Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study: History, General
Description: The main geographical areas of instruction, supervision and research are American, Asian, British, Canadian, European, and World history. Specialists cover periods from the Middle Ages to the present.

In the Honours Program, students have the opportunity to study history more independently and intensively than is normally possible in the Major and General Programs. Through the Honours Seminar (HIST 480) and individual instruction in writing and research (HIST 398, 497), the Honours Program encourages students to think critically and to deepen their understanding of both the content and craft of history. While the primary intent of the Honours Program is to help any interested and talented student of history achieve an excellent education in the liberal arts, the program should be especially useful for students contemplating graduate work in history or careers in senior secondary teaching, journalism, law, library science or government service.
