Graduate School

A graduate degree is required to advance in many careers today. Our department prides itself on preparing our students to successfully apply to graduate schools and then complete their programs. Some of our graduates are pursuing Masters and Doctoral degrees in History, but many others have pursued their interests across a wide spectrum of fields.

MongoliaOur senior course, Career and ePortfolio Workshop, provides students considering graduate study with information about the application process and supports them as they write application essays for a potential application to a school of their choice. Visiting alumni also share their advice in conversation as part of the course, giving students the benefit of real-world experiences.
