About

The Department of History from Queen's University offers challenging and innovative MA and PhD programs in established and new fields of historical inquiry.

Overview

We have a stellar record of placing our doctoral students in academic appointments, prestigious post-doctoral fellowships and senior government positions in Canada and abroad. MA and PhD graduates have also excelled in careers in government, media and private business. Many of our PhD students complete their degrees before their fifth year, and publish their theses as highly-regarded books. 

History students are taught primarily in small all-graduate seminars, in which they engage in a lively, critical examination of historical writing, and delve into research in primary sources. MA and PhD students join an energetic young academic community: they participate in the departmental seminar series and biannually host the McGill-Queen's Graduate History conference that draws students from across Canada and the US. We are a mid-sized university and department, and we are therefore able to create for our students a rich, supportive learning community.

Queen's University History Department offers funding for MA and Ph.D. students through a combination of internal and external awards and teaching assistantships and fellowships. We guarantee our doctoral students an annual minimum of $18,000 for four years. This is a guaranteed minimum, and in practice our students most often receive substantially more than this, depending on external and  internal competitions.
