Welcome

Welcome.  Carleton provides students with hands on experience through course projects, digital history, coops, practicums and paid student internships. We offer courses in Canadian, European, African, American, Latin American, Caribbean, South Asian and Japanese history, and in thematic areas that transcend particular regions, such as the history of sexuality, the history of slavery, environmental history and the social history of alcohol. Our graduate program offers rigorous training at the M.A. and Ph.D. levels, and an M.A. program in Public History.

Students at Carleton are encouraged to explore history using a diversity of sources, methodologies and media. Read more about the innovative and award winning projects our students have completed in recent years. Read Hollis’s blog about why he chose history, and view Victoria’s interview on hands-on work experience.
