Uncover the past

Humanities Student in Museum

The study of history at Mount Royal University provides you with a broad base of knowledge in Canadian, European and American history. It also develops an understanding of the methods of historical research and analysis and historical reasoning that distinguish history as a branch of knowledge in the humanities and social sciences.

Mount Royal history students have exciting opportunities for hands-on experience, including:

  • innovative assignments that take you out of the classroom
  • field courses that incorporate travel
  • involvement with faculty research
  • volunteer work with organizations such as Heritage Park

In addition to the intrinsic value of historical study, it is also excellent preparation for graduate studies in history, as well as careers in areas such as teaching, law, archival studies, international affairs, journalism and public administration.
