Graduate Certificates

Graduate Certificates

History graduate students may also pursue one or more graduate certificates; some of the coursework for these might be taken after department coursework is complete. Please consult descriptions for each and for details of applications and requirements. Students are encouraged to meet with the Graduate Director in their first semester of certificate coursework to ensure smooth combination with departmental requirements.
