Congratulations on being accepted into a Bachelor of Arts degree program! You are embarking on an academic journey that will offer you the best of a broad liberal education with the ability to specialize in various fields of study.
The Department of History offers instruction in a broad range of historical fields. The Programs in History provide a broad liberal arts education, with widespread application. The BA Honours in History deepens the foundation in historical studies and provides excellent preparation for graduate studies in history as well as fields such as education, law, journalism and public administration.
The Department strongly recommends that History students do not concentrate their studies in one period or thematic area. The Department encourages breadth in History and advises students to take courses about different chronological eras, in different geographic areas, and from different analytical perspectives.
The Bachelor of Arts degree is offered as either a B.A. or B.A. (Honours), both requiring the completion of 120 units and normally four years of full-time study.
