History

The academic and professional pursuit of History is the process of bringing the past to life. The study of History encompasses all aspects of human experience, from wars to celebrity culture, and is constantly evolving as our knowledge and perspectives advance.

As a History student you will have the flexibility to pursue your own interests within the discipline and the ability to regularly collaborate with your professors due to our small class sizes. Our courses provide you with various approaches to the study of History and the necessary skills to analyze any issue within its historical context. You will examine historical topics from North America, Europe, Latin America, Africa and South Asia including:

  • Aboriginal History
  • Digital History
  • Environmental History
  • Gender History
  • International Development
  • Political History
  • Medical History
  • Military History
  • Social History

You may choose to combine your History degree with a degree in English, French, Philosophy, Political Science, Sociology, Women's Studies, Outdoor Recreation, Parks and Tourism and Concurrent Education. Double majoring allows you to apply your History knowledge to a particular subject and focus your studies from first year onward. Various certificate options are also available.  Students can also choose as part of their history degree to do Specializations in Public History or Military History.

We also offer unique experiential learning opportunities including Community Placement and our Public History Field School allowing you to apply your knowledge of various historical periods and theories in the field.

As a first year History major, you are required to complete History 1100 – The Making of the Modern World – either on-campus or online. This introductory course explores how historians attempt to explain developments in the modern world during the last seven centuries. Each class has no more than 80 students. You will develop research and writing skills for History and learn how to analyze and integrate primary and secondary sources into your work. 

The balance of your courses will be from the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities. 

Upper year courses you can look forward to include:

  • Canadian Military History
  • Gender and Colonialism in South Asia
  • The Hitler State
  • The Holocaust
  • History of Medicine
  • History of Sport in Canada
  • Modern Latin America
  • Modern South Asia
  • Twentieth Century Russia and Eastern Europe
  • World War I and II

The Lakehead University History Society (LUHS) is a student-run club open to all students at Lakehead University with an interest in History. We encourage you to take part in this great organization to meet like-minded peers, gather information and advice from upper year students and discover new opportunities within the faculty and the workforce. LUHS organizes events each semester to ensure you will be aware of your options post-graduation.

Our Department of History also has a Peer Mentoring Program (HPMP) which allows third and fourth-year History majors and specialization students to work directly with first and second-year History students in a variety of co-curricular capacities. Participating in the HPMP in first and/or second year will help integrate you into university life and learning. Various workshops, seminars, readings and tutorials are held throughout the year to enhance your academic skills and confidence within the department.
