UTM ACADEMIC SOC - Historical Studies Society at UTM

Welcome to the official Historical Studies Society at the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM)!

If you're enrolled in a historical studies program at UTM, then this is the group you should join. Our academic society benefits undergraduate students at UTM who may have questions about:

- Subject POSt options;
- Course selection;
- Social events (on & off campus) for history students;
- Academic workshops hosted by the HSS and Career Centre;
- Fundraisers held on campus;
- Text book exchanges/sales;
- Networking with like-minded peers in similar programs;
- Gaining volunteer experience at HSS-hosted activities;
- Grad school information; and,
- Career options and guidance.

There are approximately 11,000 undergraduate students currently enrolled at UTM. That does not include the 400 graduate students, and 700 faculty and staff who are also members of our campus community. Did you know that 1/3 of the UTM population is enrolled in a history program? To give you a rough idea, at present there are over 3,800 students in UTM history programs. We're a historical studies family that keeps growing, and we are delighted that you decided to join us!

If you have any questions, please contact us at, or write on our Facebook wall.

‘Looking forward to meeting you in person. Since we recruit Outreach Committee members throughout the year, please let us know if you're interested in volunteering.

Stay abreast of all things history by visiting our Facebook and Blackboard Organization page weekly. You can also pick up a copy of our monthly newsletter, Tempus Fugit (available both online and in print).

Once again, thank you for choosing historical studies! Remember you can always check the UTM Department of Historical Studies for additional program and course information.

Ad excellentiam,

The 2012-2013 HSS Executive

History with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes, and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days.
