This Ph.D. program specializes in transatlantic, transnational, and global approaches to history. Our award-winning faculty teach graduate courses that cover a wide variety of topics and geographic areas, with a particular focus on the United States, Europe, and Latin America, as well as borderlands, transatlantic, and transnational history.


The Ph.D. in history prepares our graduates to work in a variety of careers, both within and outside of academia—as researchers, teachers, writers, and thinkers. Along with traditional colloquia and seminars focusing on a variety of geographic and chronological topics, we offer graduate certificates in archival administration and public history. Those interested will also find skill-developing workshops and coursework on topics such as college teaching, digital humanities, and Geographical Information Systems. Full-time Ph.D. students take a full course load (nine hours per term) and are expected to complete the program in six years, although we also accept part-time Ph.D. students who may take longer. Applicants should have either a BA or MA in history, or at least 18 hours in upper-division undergraduate history courses.
