Program Description:

Welcome to the Graduate Program in History at Purdue University. Graduate education is a vital core component of our mission at Purdue: it helps sustain the scholars on our faculty, helps train the coming generation of professional historians, and helps refresh the undergraduate experience for the thousands of students who take our courses annually. If you are interested in pursuing graduate education in history we have several strengths to offer you: 1) a relatively small program (lots of "face time" with the graduate faculty); 2) exceptionally talented scholars in a wide variety of fields of study; 3) streamlined procedures designed to move you expeditiously toward your degree objective: and 4) plenty of opportunities for hands-on teaching experience. Follow the links on this page to see specifics about our program, faculty, current students and application procedures. And always feel free to contact us at historygradsecretary@purdue.edu with any questions you have! The Department has expanded their Study Abroad Programs for graduate students and faculty. View the respective page for more detail. Stay involved with departmental events by viewing the calendar throughout the year. John L. Larson Director of Graduate Education
