Why study history at FIU?

The Department of History offers advanced academic training for graduate students at both the master's and doctoral levels. Take advantage of our excellent faculty to gain a deep appreciation of the trends and themes that inform our understanding of the past and frame future approaches to policy making. The department pioneered the establishment of a PhD in Atlantic History and is deeply committed to encouraging both transnational and comparative approaches as well as the pursuit of regional historical research that takes full advantage of Miami's geographical location and cultural specificities.
