“Once upon a time…” Every History course at Vanier could begin like this. History is the study of stories from the past. To get to those stories, historians explore important people, magical places, fantastic events, and eras when things were truly different. Ancient Greece, the Trojan War, Cleopatra, Julius Caesar, the Dark Ages, Joan of Arc, the desert oasis of Timbuktu, the Renaissance, Christopher Columbus, the Salem Witch Trials, the French Revolution, Gandhi and Kwame Nkrumah and Fidel Castro, the rise of TV and pop music… history tells all their stories and studies how they changed the world. History at CEGEP goes beyond the Jacques Cartier and Samuel de Champlain everyone knows about. It develops your abilities to analyze the stories you hear, to explain your thoughts in a systematic way, and to apply the critical skills demanded by universities and careers. Historians are lawyers, detectives, writers, journalists, politicians, teachers and so much more. Do you want to know why we are the way we are? First, you need to understand the way we were.
