The Department of History offers a number of teaching and research assistantships as well as fellowships to assist graduate students. Students holding teaching assistantships will be assigned to lead weekly discussion sections in introductory history classes. Teaching assistants are required to take a teaching practicum to familiarize themselves with textbooks, audio-visual materials, and teaching techniques on the undergraduate level. Advanced students will also be offered opportunities to teach their own undergraduate courses.
Research assistantships are available through the department, the College of Arts & Sciences, faculty grants, and endowed funds. In addition, the department provides travel and research support through an internal fund.
Graduate fellowships are offered through the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies and the College of Arts & Sciences.
Assistantships are renewable for up to five years for students demonstrating progress toward the degree and performing duties satisfactorily.
