• Welcome to the Department of History at the University of Lethbridge! Our department includes an incredible group of professors, all with national and international reputations for their scholarship. Our geographical strengths are in western European and North American History, but we also offer courses in World History and Asian History, and our temporal expertise stretches from the Ancient World to the twentieth century.  

     

  • As a small department, we take pride in getting to know our students and are dedicated to helping them succeed. In addition to our regularly-offered courses, our students have the opportunity to complete Independent Studies, where they research a topic of their own choosing, and Applied Studies, where they get credit for relevant work experience. Our small graduate cohort and close working relationships with other departments means we can tailor an MA program to suit your interests. 

  • Even better than the opportunities we create for our students are the ones our students create for themselves. The History Undergraduate Society (or THUGS) is an extremely active and supportive student club. Every year they host events ranging from the popular “meet the profs” night, to essay and exam prep workshops, to a wide range of social events including friendly competitions with other student clubs. 

  • History isn’t just the study of past events; it’s the study of how our world came to be.
