Lawson Hall

The Department of History at Western has been supervising graduate degrees for more than a century. We invite you to become part of this proud tradition.

Our course offerings are rich and varied. Our faculty is large, diverse, and distinguished. We have deep strengths in Canadian history, the history of international relations and conflict, environmental history, and public history, with courses and eminent scholars in many other areas as well. And we are a recognized leader in the new digital history and digital humanities.

We invite you to explore this website and to contact us for more information. We also invite applicants to visit Western, tour the university and the department's facilities, and meet possible supervisors and current graduate students -- just contact us to make arrangements.
