Congratulations from the History Department

On behalf of all the members of the History Department, we would like to extend our warmest congratulations to all those students who completed their degrees with us in November 2021. We are so proud of what you have accomplished during this challenging year and we are excited for you as you embark on the next phase of your life. We wish you all the best in these new adventures and encourage you to stay in touch. As a Carleton alumni, your experiences and mentorship are invaluable for the students who follow in your footsteps. We look forward to hearing from you in the future!

Congratulations from the Chair

Dear Graduating Students,

Many congratulations on having successfully completed your degree at Carleton! Achieving a degree requires a great deal of thought, tenacity, and energy in the best of times and everyone in the department is well aware of the additional challenges that you have faced due to the pandemic. I hope that any disappointment you might feel about not completing your degree in ‘normal’ circumstances is outweighed by a justifiable sense of pride at having persevered and succeeded in trying times. I wish you all the best in whatever the future holds and hope that you will stay in touch with the department in the coming years.

Prof. James Miller, Chair

“There are multiple ways to learn history, from talking to family members and elders, to seeing the neighbourhood landmarks, watching media, reading, or traveling. School is only one of them, with its more specialised language, research, and analytical ambitions. We hope that this department will have helped you along the way, and that you will remember your classes here as fondly as we will your work and development. Keep in touch, farewell, and godspeed.”
– Prof. Dominique Marshall
