Admissions

 

We regret to announce that the Ph.D. program in History will not be accepting admissions applications for fall 2021. We have taken this difficult step in order to ensure we have the resources needed to support our current students during the Covid-19 pandemic. We expect to resume accepting applications in the fall of 2021 for admission in the fall of 2022.

We continue to accept applications to our MA in History and to our MA dual degrees, History and Library Science (HILS) and History and Historic Preservation (HiHP), for fall 2021.  

The next application deadline, for Fall 2021 matriculation for MA applicants, is December 17, 2020.  For HiHP students the deadline is January 15, 2021 and for HiLS students the deadline is January 20, 2021. The Department of History does not consider applications for spring semester admissions.  Please note that we have temporarily eliminated the GRE requirement for students applying to the MA programs in the fall of 2020.

If you are interested in applying, please consult the pages in this section to see admission requirements, processes, and statistics.
