History is a narrative discipline that examines past events, people, perspectives and experiences in diverse times and places in order to understand the historical context and interconnection to our current world. The program applies the systematic study of events, world-wide civilizations and significant concepts to inform our global awareness and to enhance the ability to think critically. You will learn from dedicated and published professors who have expertise in North American, European, International, and Community and Oral History.

Studying in the History program at Nipissing will open the door to the past, and help you to understand the present. Many Nipissing history grads go on to become professional academic or public historians; others go into politics, business or law; and many become teachers. Whichever profession you pursue, the research and critical analytical skills you learn as a history student will benefit you greatly.

Our department is one of the largest at Nipissing University, and offers students many options. Our faculty study and teach a variety of fields in North American, European and World History. We have expertise in Canadian political and social history, modern and early modern European and British history, the Middle Ages, the colonial and antebellum United States, the Second World War and its aftermath, the history of genocide and war crimes trials, Russian/Soviet history, 20th century International history, and more!
