The study of History at Trinity Western University embodies the academic mission of the institution - to create a vigorous academic environment that develops knowledgeable and skillful Christian leaders.
The theories and methods encountered in the discipline of History help students investigate how peoples and societies unfolded in response to beliefs, ideas, passions, and material and social conditions. Awareness of these matters enables graduates to arrive at more balanced interpretations and conclusions about the present. The intention is to train historically alert Christian leaders capable of making informed decisions and contributing to the health and welfare of their communities. TWU’s Laurentian Leadership Centre in Ottawa gives students an opportunity to study Canada’s history while also completing an internship that enables them to apply their historical skills in a government or industry setting.
