Mission Statement:

The Saint Mary's History Society is open to all history majors, minors, honours, and any other interested Saint Mary’s students. The intention of the society is to further the student’s appreciation of history as a discipline and to foster and broaden historic knowledge and interests. By hosting a variety of events, it is our goal to help students network with peers, professors and members of the historic Halifax community.

The student-run History Society is always looking for new members. Please email smuhistory@gmail.com for more information on how to get involved or you may contact Kirby Ross.

We also invite you to join the SMU History Society on Facebook.
