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.


In late June, Dr. Terry Copp, C. M., professor emeritus in history from Wilfrid Laurier University was appointed Member of the Order of Canada by Her Excellency the Right Honourable Mary Simon, Governor General. He co-founded and is director emeritus of the Laurier Centre for Military and Strategic Disarmament Studies, (now Laurier Centre for the Study of Canada) where he fostered a rich community of scholarship and cemented Canada’s role in the Second World War. His ongoing work is a legacy to future generations and their knowledge of our past. An investiture ceremony will take place at a later date.
