Before You Apply

Here are some suggestions to you as you consider our department for your graduate studies.

  • Please discuss the advisability of pursuing a Ph.D. in History with a trusted academic advisor -- preferably someone who holds the Ph.D. degree in History.
  • Acquaint yourself with our graduate faculty and their research interests. Please note that the single most important criterion that the Admissions Committee considers is whether there is a good fit between your research interests and those of one or more of our faculty.
