The entrance to the Department of History’s office in Sidney Smith Hall
 

The History Students’ Association (HSA) aims to bring together undergraduate students and professors with a common interest in history by hosting a number of social and intellectual events throughout the year. Every student who takes at least one-half course in the Department of History is a member of the student association.

The association contributes to the Department of History's intellectual community by:

  • Publishing a journal of undergraduate student work, The Future of History
  • Holding an annual conference
  • Running a mentorship program that pairs first- and second-year history students with upper-year students with similar interests
  • Sending out regular newsletters about their activities and other opportunities for students

The HSA gives undergraduate students a voice in curriculum and policy-making by representing them at meetings of the Department of History and our Undergraduate Program Committee.
