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.




The History Department at the University of Saskatchewan maintains a 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 Folklore Graduate Fellowship in History.


Community-Engaged Research

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 Canada Research Chair in the History of Medicine.
