Preparing Future Historians and Educators
Our Program in History at Miami University prepares students to become professional historians in a wide range of fields. It is deliberately selective and flexible. Our excellent faculty provides students with rigorous training in the historian’s skills, historiography, and theoretical reflection while encouraging them to develop and pursue their own interests. Students become part of a dynamic intellectual community, within the department and beyond. They benefit from opportunities offered by the Humanities Center, the Havighurst Center for Russian & Post-Soviet Studies, interdisciplinary programs such as American Studies and Women’s Studies, our overseas language programs, and strong humanities departments.
Our aim is to meet the demands of, on the one hand, students looking for "traditional" academic training and, on the other, those seeking to enter directly into the job market after graduation or into programs in other disciplines (e.g., Library Science, Museum Studies).
Our graduates have gone on to competitive doctoral programs and to academic positions around the country; or they have entered careers in teaching, public history, library science, and university administration.
