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.

    Today, we honour Professor Alan Gordon. He passed away on July 25, 2022, almost one month ago, after a battle with pancreatic cancer. The Tri-U community continues to mourn his loss and miss his contributions to student and faculty life. As the news release from Guelph written by colleague Dr. Susan Nance states, "His passing leaves a huge hole in our hearts."
