History:

Though the History and Politics Department was not officially formed until 1993, both first year History and Politics courses were offered at UNBSJ beginning in 1964, its first year of establishment. Courses in the first year were taught by Stephen Patterson (History) and Eleanor Wylie (Politics). In the following year, second year History and Politics courses were also offered. All classes were offered at Beaverbrook House until 1969 when the entire Faculty of Arts, under which History and Politics courses fell, moved to Sir Douglas Hazen Hall on the Tucker Park campus.

In subsequent years, History and Politics at UNBSJ grew separately as disciplines within the Arts faculty, which was administratively headquartered at UNB Fredericton. By 1975, eight courses were offered in Political Science and eleven courses were offered in History. Beginning in 1974, the two subjects were taught alongside one another in the two interdisciplinary Arts majors: the General Social Sciences major, which involved the study of urban history and urban politics, and 20th Century Studies in the Humanities, which was comprised of a combination of history, philosophy and literature of modern man. Two years later, seven disciplines including Political Science were categorized within the Faculty of Arts’ Division of Social Science. History was considered part of the Humanities and Languages Division. Alongside this divisional structure, the UNBSJ disciplines also remained separated in their respective UNB Fredericton departments. While part of the Division of Social Science, a Major in History became available to students in 1978, followed by Honours in 1991. At this time Dr. Neil Ridler was serving as the final chair of the Social Science Division. In 1993, the UNBSJ Faculty of Arts was created, and with it the UNBSJ Department of History and Politics was officially established. Dr. Donald Desserud first chaired the department where he remained until 1995. In the same year, a four-year Major in Politics was offered. By this time the number of combined course offerings in History and Politics had grown from a mere nineteen in 1975 to sixty.
