Welcome to the Department of History

Committed to preserving, exploring, and enhancing the knowledge of the human past with a focus on modern Canadian history and Medieval history, the Department of History at St. Jerome’s University focuses on people, nations, landscapes, ideas, events, politics, religion, and social constructs such as race, gender, class, and ethnicity.


Our programs and courses are designed and delivered to stimulate students’ intellectual curiosity and critical-thought abilities, leading to a creative, well-rounded life.


Research interests and expertise within the department include Canadian foreign and defence policy, with an emphasis on the Arctic and Asia.
