Graduate Study in History
A broad view of history - A new generation of scholars
The Princeton graduate history program seeks to train the next generation of scholars. We value an approach to scholarship grounded in the particular while retaining a sense of the whole.
Throughout the path to the Ph.D., graduate students learn to take as comprehensive a view of history as possible. In their courses the faculty encourage students to trespass outside geographic and disciplinary boundaries. Students, faculty, and outside scholars continue these conversations beyond the classroom through workshops, lectures, and conferences, all part of Princeton's vibrant intellectual community.
Students leave the program with a far-reaching understanding of the past and prepared to engage in discipline-defining research. They go on to careers writing and teaching at top universities and colleges around the world.
