History is growing in popularity at Memorial University. The number of students taking majors or minors in history has almost doubled in the past five years.
Some of that popularity can be attributed to mass media—to the television networks devoted to the visual documentation or dramatization of the past, and to books, magazines and movies.
But more importantly, Memorial's History Department offers a wide range of appealing courses and exceptional resources.
Students know that studying history will give them research, analytical and problem-solving skills, and hone their writing abilities.
Memorial's History Department also delivers a variety of the research/writing courses required for the BA degree, courses which not only serve as a foundation for upper level courses in history (which generally have a core essay requirement), but as a basis for many employment opportunities.
