Prepare to Teach History with Award Winning Scholars

The Brandeis history department combines the best of both worlds: the intimacy of a small liberal-arts college department and the Historyintellectual strength of a major research institution.  When you concentrate in history as a member of the Brandeis MAT cohort,  you can expect
  • First-class training: The History program is a highly selective program that trains students in the broad field of history, problems in historiography and critical thinking, research and writing skills.
  • Dedicated mentoring: Brandeis is a small research university with an emphasis on small classes and genuine mentorship; each student has the opportunity to work closely with a distinguished scholar.
  • Intellectual diversity: Brandeis has an array of graduate programs that complement and overlap with the graduate program in American history, including politics, Near Eastern and Judaic studies, sociology, and English and American literature. Faculty in the African and Afro-American studies and American studies departments play key roles in the program.

Brandeis History Department in the News....

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has awarded a $175,000 grant to Brandeis University to organize a year-long seminar that will bring together faculty and graduate students from Brandeis and other schools in the Boston area to consider the entangled histories and enduring effects of the American (1776-1783), French (1789-1799) and Haitian (1791-1804) revolutions.  The seminar was conceived and will be led by two members of the Brandeis faculty, Jane Kamensky, the Harry S. Truman Professor of American Civilization, and Susan S. Lanser, Professor of Comparative Literature, English, and Women's and Gender Studies.
