Graduate Testimonial: Kathryn Rose

As a history librarian in an academic environment, I am constantly drawing on the skills and knowledge I obtained during my Master's and PhD studies in the Tri-University program. Course design, historiography, significant reading, research assignments and structure are regular components of my day.

The collaboration between the three departments allows students to draw on the strengths of each, offering a diverse field of experts not available in most programs.

Both programmes provide interesting research and teaching opportunities, under the guidance of engaged faculty. Student support was continuous through the program, as faculty mentorship was an integral part of the Tri-U structure.

The Master's program presents a number of unique opportunities for students. The annual graduate conference provides students with a forum to present their research, and learn about the research of their peers. The Cleghorn Battlefield tour provided successful Laurier applicants in the Tri-U the chance to tour Canadian battlefields in Europe, and question the events surrounding the world wars while walking the ground. These two opportunities enriched my own graduate experience, and profoundly shaped my professional and academic ambitions.
