Students trade classroom for the historical sites of Hamilton

19th Century Auchmar House in Hamilton

Students enrolled in the History 3HP3: History Practicum course have the opportunity to trade the classroom for the historical sites of Hamilton.

The unique course pairs McMaster History students with local businesses or community groups working on specific heritage projects.

In other placements, students have partnered with the Hamilton Public Library, Dundas’ Picone’s Fine Foods and Dundurn Castle National Historic Site. They’ve even written the text for a number of local historical markers and plaques.
