Welcome

Carleton’s history department provides students with hands on experience through course projects, coops, practicums and paid student internships, and we encourage students to explore the new opportunities provided by digital history. We offer undergraduate courses in Canadian, European, African, American, Latin American, Caribbean, South Asian and Japanese history, and in thematic areas that transcend particular regions, such as the history of sexuality, the history of slavery, environmental history and the social history of alcohol.

Our graduate program offers rigorous training at the M.A. and Ph.D. levels, covering a wide range of fields, and an M.A. program in Public History. Please explore our website for further information, or contact us at history@carleton.ca.
