Welcome to Tri-University History Graduate Program

The Tri-University Graduate Program in History combines the faculty and resources of three of Canada’s premier universities, University of Guelph, University of Waterloo, and Wilfrid Laurier University. With over seventy graduate faculty in the program, we are one of the largest History graduate programs in the country and able to provide courses and supervise research across the widest possible range of areas. At the same time, through small seminars, close student-professor relationships, and teaching assistantships and scholarships held at one of our three participating campuses, we provide the atmosphere and collegiality of a smaller, more intimate program.


Emily Kaliel, PhD candidate at the University of Guelph, was awarded the Segall Prize by the Canadian Society for the History of Medicine (CSHM) at their annual conference held on 27-29 May, 2023. Emily’s paper was entitled: “’Rather Isolated Communities Remote from Medical Aid’:  Changing Public Health Landscapes in Alberta at Mid-century.”
