Program Information

School: Glendon College
Degree: Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study: History, General
Description: The History program aims to give students the opportunity to explore the human experience in different times and places, at the same time helping them to master research, critical reading, thinking and writing skills in both of Canada’s official languages. Students look at past events of various countries and regions from different perspectives, trying to connect those events in meaningful ways. Because understanding is a pre-condition for purposeful action, it is necessary for students to grasp how politics, society, culture, and economics have developed and changed throughout history in order to make sense of our contemporary world.

Our unique international bachelors degree prepares you for success in the global workforce by bringing international perspectives and experiences to your university degree. Glendon’s reputation for excellence in languages and academics, our close-knit diverse community, and our Toronto location make us the ideal host for bilingual and trilingual programs. International Bachelor of Arts (iBA) and International Bachelor of Science (iBSc) degrees follow the same structure as the BA and BSc, but fold in additional language courses, internationally-oriented courses, and an international exchange (typically completed in your third year).
