The Trent University History M.A. offers unique fields of specialization, a close working relationship with award-winning graduate faculty, a structured approach, flexibility, intellectual rigour, and individualized guidance in a small class setting. The program seeks to provide students with a firm grasp of history, both as a scholarly discipline and as an applied profession. It expands their knowledge of historical theory and methods; it develops their research and analytical skills; it guides them in conceptualizing, designing, and carrying out major research projects based on extensive work with primary sources. Trent M.A. graduates will be finely equipped for doctoral work, teaching, or non-academic professions that call for the ability to understand and interpret history.
