About

The Memorial University of Newfoundland offers unique opportunities for the study of History. As the home of the Maritime History Archive, the Folklore and Language Archive, the Centre of Newfoundland Studies, and several other research collections, the St. John's campus supports innovative and interdisciplinary research.

Overview

Our faculty are engaged in research in a wide range of topics in fields such as environmental history, social history, cultural history, military history, and many others, and supervise graduate studies covering periods from the ancient world to the twenty-first century, and regions across the globe.

The MA program in History at the Memorial University of Newfoundland is designed to be completed in 12 months, and normally consists of four semester courses and a major research paper, or, a more rigorous option, of three semester courses and a thesis. 

Research

  • Understanding the world through research into the past is at the heart of Memorial’s History department. 
  • Our faculty are engaged in a wide range of projects which vary geographically and thematically. While this research stretches from the local to the international, and covers periods from the start of history to this century, we are all linked by a deep sense that inquiry into the past allows for an understanding of today’s world. 
  • Moreover, the majority of our department’s research projects are designed to incorporate students into active, experiential learning about the past and about the world of the historian.

Programme Structure

  • Though most MA students have chosen to concentrate on Canadian or Newfoundland history, the Department welcomes students interested in aspects of United States, British, and European history. 
  • More details on these areas below. Faculty also have expertise in thematic areas such as maritime, environmental, medical, labour, military, media, and gender history.
