For Current Students

Our program places a premium on cultivating intellectual breadth, familiarity with global, comparative, and transnational history, and the ability to speak to a broad audience of historians and others interested in careful analysis of the past. We seek to build intellectual community across the boundaries of era, geography, and thematic approach.

The graduate program trains students to develop original scholarship of their own by providing them a strong disciplinary base and also encouraging creative approaches to the past.
