The Graduate Program
The Department of History at the University of California Irvine combines a distinctive approach to graduate study with an outstanding faculty. It is particularly noted for its encouragement of interdisciplinary approaches to scholarship, for an emphasis on writing for multiple publics, and for its focus on forward-looking historical methods, theories and subject areas. The Department emphasizes graduate training in world and transnational history as well as regional areas such as Asia, Latin America, Europe, the United States, Africa & the Middle East. It also offers thematic specialties such as critical theory, gender and sexuality, colonialism and empire, race and global migrations, history of the environment, and science and medicine. Whatever the studentĺs chosen emphasis, the History Graduate Program encourages students to think across national and regional boarders and to have a solid understanding of how the discipline of History contributes to debates about global and local transformation. The relatively small size of the graduate program allows for close collaboration between students and faculty.
Our doctoral students go onto an array of successful careers and academic positions. UCI Ph.D.s have been appointed to tenure track positions throughout the country and overseas including several UCs, California State Universities and community colleges as well as Cornell University, the University of Wisconsin, the University of Missouri, the University of Pittsburgh, among others. (Our full placement record is available here.)
