The Graduate Program in History at The University of Memphis offers exceptional training
and an optimistic prospect for future success.
Graduating from major research institutions across North America, our faculty demand
excellence from themselves and their students alike. University of Memphis graduate faculty in History are recognized at the highest levels of the profession for their innovative methodology,
exhaustive research, and insightful writing. Graduate students benefit from regular
interaction with faculty both in the classroom and through the daily life of the department.
In every respect, whether it is through participating in seminars and colloquia, serving
on department committees, publication and presentation, or membership in the Graduate History Association (GHA), Graduate Association for African-American History (GAAAH), or Phi Alpha Theta, you will develop your own identity as a historian. All of our graduate students
accept responsibility for enhancing the value of their degrees while contributing
to an overall departmental atmosphere that is challenging yet collegial. As a participant
in our program, you will be encouraged to implement a proactive approach in your career
choices while establishing yourself as a peer within the profession.

it, consulting it often.
