Graduate School - History


Many careers in history require advanced degrees. Your adviser or an instructor is the best place to start to talk about graduate schools related to history.

There are many specializations within history and a variety of programs at the master's and doctoral levels. Talk with your adviser and other history faculty about which specialty is best suited to your interests.

Some students pursue graduate training in fields that are very closely connected to history (e.g., law or library science), and others pursue training in fields that are related, yet different (e.g., lobbyist and Legislative Aide).
