Pennsylvania State University, based in University Park, PA offers a fully funded PhD in History. The PhD program is designed to prepare students for careers inside or outside academia. The program admits students in five primary fields, which reflect faculty strength: United States, Latin America, Early Modern Global, China, and Middle East. All graduate students in good standing receive full financial support for five years. Students in our program initially work as teaching assistants, and later work as editorial assistants, research assistants, or research fellows. The department also supports participation in academic conferences and provides funds for summer study and research.
