History

From the ancient Greeks, to colonial Canada, to the Winnipeg Jets, an understanding of the complexities of the past shapes how we understand the present.  

The study of history enables students to understand the movements, the people, places and events that shape the world we live in.

History calls you, not only to learn the facts, but to imagine the lives, loves and frustrations of people in both the ancient and the near past.

From these understandings, history majors bring insight into the conflicts and complexities of today. History majors are creative and resourceful people who can research, evaluate and present complex information—making them a valuable commodity for a number of different jobs.

The study of history enables students to understand the movements, the people, places and events that shape the world in which we live.
CMU’s small class size means that students have access to support and feedback from their instructors at a much greater level than many other post-secondary institutions.
Many of our grads use their history degrees as an entry into the field of education, and are employed by school divisions in North America and around the world.
The scope of the History program at CMU spans from the ancient civilizations of Egypt and Mesopotamia to the present day. The Reformation, the Renaissance, French Revolution and other time periods are all examples of eras covered.
