About

The Department of History at Kansas State University offers well-prepared students an exceptional opportunity to work closely with an unusually productive and well regarded faculty. The department aims to help students find and develop their talents fully and to establish themselves as independent scholars, teachers, and other historical professionals.

Overview

The doctor of philosophy in History requires completing 30 hours of course work beyond the master’s, satisfying the language requirement, passing the qualifying examination, and writing a sound dissertation based on original historical research that is approved by the student’s committee. 

Key Facts:

The qualifying examination includes separate examinations in a geographically and chronologically defined general field (United States; or medieval, early modern, or modern Europe) and three special fields, one of which must offer a mode of understanding that is significantly different from the dissertation field or be from outside history.

Graduate degrees in history have traditionally led to positions in higher education, and students earning the Ph.D. at Kansas State University have effective preparation for careers as teachers and scholars. But a high percentage of history graduate degree holders also enter archival or museum work, historical publishing, governmental official history programs, historical research for private businesses, and professional service as military officers.
