Welcome to HistoryDespite its relatively small size, the Department of History offers Brandeis students a comprehensive education in the study of the past, both on the undergraduate (major, minor and B.A./M.A.) and on the graduate level (M.A. and Ph.D.). Indeed, its Ph.D. program has consistently received high marks in national surveys and rankings, and can boast an outstanding placement record.
These programs combine:
- intensive work with world-class faculty members;
- flexible requirements that encourage students to define their own courses of study;
- a vibrant intellectual community within a small research university; and
- extensive documentary resources at Brandeis and in the greater Boston area.
The major in history seeks to provide students with a broad introduction to the development of the modern world. The major is flexible, enabling students to devise individual programs tailored to their own specific needs and interests.
M.A. in history
Designed to meet the varied academic and professional needs of graduate students, the M.A. program is especially well suited to students interested in comparative and transnational history.
Ph.D. in history
Our Ph.D. program offers opportunities for students to study many areas of world history, building on our special strengths in American and European history.
