Testimonial: Lisa Timoshenko

Enrolling in History at Laurier lets you have the best of both worlds—the department is small enough to offer students a real sense of community, and yet it is still able to offer a wide range of courses to suit the interests of any budding historian.

The faculty are knowledgeable, engaging and approachable. More importantly, they are invested in their students. During and after class, it’s not uncommon to see lively conversations between students and professors who are passionate about their subject and make a point of engaging with contrasting points of view.

Outside of the classroom, we had the chance to get to know our faculty at Meet the Profs night, and I was always impressed with the number of both students and faculty that attended each semester.

The program challenges students to develop and sharpen their research, analytical and communications skills. Through this process, students are well-supported by professors who challenge their students while providing the guidance they need. The critical thinking and writing skills I developed in the program have been vital to my success both in graduate school and now in my career. As a communications consultant who works on strategic communications planning, I need to have top-notch writing skills, but also the ability to think critically and analytically. My BA in History from Laurier gave me the foundation I needed to build those skills.
