Program Information

School: St. Thomas More College

Field of Study: History, General
Description: Historians and history students study the past to understand how and why change happens to individuals, societies and countries. Students engage the world through history and make sense of it, finding meaningful connections between the past, present and future. These connections embrace geography, culture, politics, society and the dynamics of change.

The principal goals of the history program are to help students develop the ability to read and think critically, write effectively and originally, express ideas, and advance arguments orally; appreciate the variety and diversity of the past; find meaning in past events which inform the present; acquire a “common store” of culturally important knowledge; appreciate history as an evolving discipline which constantly generates new insights; and understand how Canada and the world became as they are today.
