Interdisciplinary and Comparative
The Department is embracing a more interdisciplinary and comparative approach to historical studies, and graduate students can now pursue supporting fields in comparative gender, comparative colonialisms, comparative ethnicity and nationalism, and historiography.
The Department encourages its students to work with faculty in a variety of fields and various methodologies in order to gain broad knowledge and a comparative perspective before embarking upon specialized research. Graduate students can take courses in a host of affiliated programs and can develop secondary fields of study at the PhD level with faculty in a variety of disciplines outside of history as well.
