Research Centers

The Department of History at the University of Maryland provides numerous forums of international stature to showcase research from the Department, the University, the US, and the world.

The Department of History is home to the intellectual "soul" of historical inquiry and debate at the University of Maryland, the Nathan and Jeanette Miller Center for Historical Studies, established in 1999 through the generosity of Maryland alumni Nathan and Jeanette Miller. 

Established in 2011, the Center for Global Migration Studies (CGMS) is an interdisciplinary home for the study of migration and immigration around the world both today and in the past. CGMS provides a distinctive institutional home for interdisciplinary research, for training faculty and students, and for distributing information about the migrant experience to a broad public.
