History

History is inherently multicultural

The TWU History Program teaches an appreciation of history, multicultural experiences and their interdisciplinary connections. Our curriculum covers diverse experiences, including the influences of race, class, ethnicity, religion and gender, illustrating the complexities of decision-making, the forces producing change and diverse intellectual traditions.

We develop critical and analytical thinking, evidence-based research, oral and written presentation and public leadership to prepare students for careers, active citizenship and post-graduate education.

From internship opportunities with local historical sites and archives to research and publication opportunities with our award-winning student history journal, Ibid., our program will provide you with a foundation for success.
