Historical Studies Society (HSS)

Winners of the 2022-2023 UTMSU Office of the Dean's Pick Award!

The Historical Studies Society (HSS) is the official academic society, as approved by the University of Toronto Students' Union (UTMSU), for students enrolled in a historical studies program of study. Our society is student-oriented in its approach to creating a conversation between students enrolled in historical studies programs and courses and faculty from the Department of Historical Studies. There are approximately 11,000 undergraduate students currently enrolled at UTM and approximately a third of them are enrolled in a Historical Studies program. We're a historical studies family that keeps growing.

The HSS supports junior and senior undergraduates who have questions about:

  • subject post options
  • course selection
  • social events (on and 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 
  • career options and guidance

You are encouraged to keep checking our social media: Instagram (@hss.utm), Facebook (@utm.hss), Twitter (@hssutm) and/or email us at history@utmsu.ca. Also, we have a website! We look forward to meeting you at our events!

Ad excellentiam,
