We matriculate 10-12 Ph.D. students a year, with a smaller number of JD/MA students, and an occasional Master's student each year. Students admitted to the Ph.D. program generally receive multi-year funding packages from the Duke Graduate School, including tuition waivers, a stipend, and a teaching assistantship or gradership. Comparatively small incoming classes allow for close relationships with faculty, as well as individually tailored courses of study. History graduate students receive numerous opportunities to teach, both as T.A.s and eventually, on their own, both at Duke and other area colleges and universities.
