The Department of History traces its roots at UBC back to the appointment of S. Mack Eastman in 1915. For some years Eastman functioned as a "one-man department". He was joined in his pursuits by notable UBC pioneers Walter N. Sage (1918) and F.H. Soward (1922). From its beginnings the Department has undertaken to offer a broad range of scholarly studies. Today, students study Canadian, American, European, Latin American, African and Asian history. Within these broad categories, the Department offers areas of specialization in political, economic, intellectual and cultural studies.
