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.
The Department of History's graduate programs are firmly integrated into FIU's growing University Graduate School. Students in history benefit from the department's close affiliations with the African and African Diaspora Studies Program, the Latin American and Caribbean Center, the Cuban Research Institute, the European Center of Excellence, the Wolfsonian Museum, and a large number of other departments and divisions that make FIU one of the largest and most dynamic public research universities in the United States.
We are committed to providing our graduate students at both MA and PhD levels with the preparation and skills that will enable them to pursue successful careers either inside or outside of Academia. Your success is important to us!
