And thanks for your interest in the History Department at Marquette University.
The history department is a vibrant community of twenty-one scholars whose teaching and research explore the separate and intersecting pasts of the United States, Europe, Latin America, Asia, and Africa. We offer B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees in American and European history. The undergraduate and graduate programs are closely related. Closely supervised by the professors who design the courses and deliver the lectures, graduate students serve as teaching assistants in the larger sections of introductory surveys, leading discussions, grading papers and exams, and meeting students during their office hours. M.A. students frequently take upper division undergraduate courses, while senior undergraduates have the opportunity to sample graduate classes. Select Ph.D. students teach their own small survey and seminar classes to undergraduates. And all faculty members, from the most senior to the most junior, teach the whole gamut of courses, from first year surveys in the University Core of Common Studies to upper division lecture courses and undergraduate and graduate seminars and colloquia in their research specialties.
