Welcome to the website of the Marquette University History Graduate Student Organization (HGSO). This site was designed with both current and prospective students in mind. For those who are considering a career at Marquette, check out the links to the HGSO, the Graduate Community, and Campus and Community Life. Current students will be especially interested in Graduate Student Forms and Deadlines, the Doctoral Qualifying Examination Guide, and Funding Opportunities.
The graduate program in history provides students with a strong foundation in narrative and historiography, while giving them the tools needed to succeed as professional scholars and teachers. As a graduate student, you are an integral part of the program; both the student community and the faculty are genuinely interested in supporting you as a student and as a person.
Our graduate community is a collegial one in which students work together toward each other's intellectual and professional development. Graduate students in the history program will find lively discussion in the classroom and guidance through all steps of the professional process: presenting and publishing research, crafting a well-rounded curriculum vitae, and entering the job market.
We hope this website will be a helpful tool for all students — prospective and current — as they navigate their careers at Marquette.
