The Department of History offers a dynamic learning space for graduate students, and our programs (M.A. in History, M.A. in Public History, and Ph.D. in History) are designed to facilitate the development of methodological and critical skills required to pursue history at a high academic level.
Our graduate students are active, engaged, and provide an energizing presence in the Department. From organizing the annual Underhill Graduate Student Colloquium to hosting social events sponsored by the History Graduate Students’ Association, our students are involved in every facet of academic life.
The Department of History strives to provide all of our students with funding opportunities, personalized faculty supervision, and the resources needed to complete their innovative research projects. You can explore every PhD and MA thesis produced at Carleton since 1958 by exploring our Graduate Degree Research Showcase. Read more in our brochure with details about the program.
