We are dedicated to training first-rate historians for careers in and out of the classroom.
Graduate students have access to all the benefits of one of the largest history departments and one of the largest research libraries in the country. With more than fifty faculty members, the Department of History provides a rich range of choices for graduate study. Yet the graduate program is not impersonal: the faculty take pride in providing small classes and supportive advising for students.
A doctoral degree in history provides opportunities for employment in academic research and college teaching. Some graduates also take positions working in public history, for museums, historical organizations, and government agencies.
