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.

  1. Mar. 7, 2023Why would a history professor enter politics? Interview with Cody Groat, Tri-U PhD cand. in history and assistant professor

    “I think that my role as a university professor makes me well-suited for service as a parliamentarian, as a lot of the skills are transferrable,” explains Cody Groat. “I've long been interested in politics at a local, regional, and national level.”

    Jesse Abbott’s dissertation, “‘The Art of Getting Drunk:’ Martial Masculinity, Alcohol, and the British Army in the Canadas in the War of 1812,” was successfully defended on Thursday, January 19, 2023, at the University of Waterloo.

    Just before the 2022 year-end holidays (December 20, 2022), Paul Esau successfully defended his PhD dissertation entitled, “A Departmental Dilemma: The Genesis of Canadian Military Export Policy, 1945-1960.” Esau’s study seeks to explain Canadian government contradictions between policy on paper and in practice, by exploring the evolution of conventional military export policy in the key years between 1946 and 1960.
