Alumni Placement

Graduates from our Ph.D. and M.A. programs in History have gone on to successful careers in academia, law, government, museums and archives, and a variety of other fields. Many of our M.A. students have also pursued additional academic and professional degrees following their graduation.

This list is necessarily incomplete, as our alumni continue to accept new positions and receive new degrees in History and related fields.

If you are a graduate of one of our programs and your information has changed, please help keep us up to date!
