Graduate Opportunities

HGISThe Historical GIS Lab

The Historical GIS Lab unites history and geography to explore change through time and variation across space. The Historical GIS lab provides spacious work stations, technical support, training, and access to hardware and software to graduate students interested in digital history and historical geography.

Community Engaged ResearchCollab

The Community-Engaged History Collaboratorium brings students and faculty into partnerships with community groups so that local histories that might otherwise be eclipsed can be heard. The Collaboratorium provides graduate students with paid summer internships researching and overseeing projects designed to meet both community and academic goals. Opportunities for community engaged research are also available through the History of Medicine’s Canada Research Chair in collaboration with the Eugenics archive and History of Madness project.


The History Department at the University of Saskatchewan publishes the Canadian Journal of History/Annales canadiennes d’histoire and the Canadian Bulletin of Medical History. We also operate in partnership with Folklore magazine, created by the Saskatchewan History and Folklore Society. Our Graduate students have the opportunity to gain firsthand experience in the academic publishing industry through the Graduate Fellowship in History and Scholarly Publishing and the Folklore Graduate Fellowship in History.
