  1. Hello Guys, Planning to apply for PhD program in South Asian History, but still confused which Universities have the best Programs and faculty for the field. Opinions and Suggestions are welcome.
  2. Hi everyone, I am looking for a Masters degree (or even a PhD) that is available through online distance learning. The field I am looking for is History... or a closely related field. There are some programs like the one at the University of Edinburgh but I am looking for something that is cheaper than that. Doesn't matter which country. If anyone knows, please help. Thanks in advance...
  3. Hi all! I'm an undergraduate History student at a Canadian University going to my fourth year. I want to go to the top 10 phd programs in the World(or, in the US), focusing on modern Chinese History. I understand it is extremely competitive, and I'm not a super-smart student. But my parents would support me for the next 3-5 years to just prepare for the phd application. They would pay tuitions of any unfunded MA program, my living expenses, and research travels(I'm really really lucky). I'm looking for advice on how to using the money and time wisely. I currently have a 3.0 gpa for
  4. Hi everyone, Long time lurker, first time poster. Wondering if anyone could provide some insight on my candidacy for applying to a terminal MA program in history. I feel a little overwhelmed about applying to US schools as a Canadian, and I don't have a GRE score (which, understandably precludes me from many schools). Nonetheless, I'm interested in applying to Yale, NYU, McGill, UBC, and the LSE/Columbia joint MSc program in international history. To be honest, I'm desperate to get some information about where I stand. I know this is hard to answer but I'm trying to ascertain wheth
  5. Hi all, I'm graduating from a MFA program in Architectural History next year (spring 2021) and have been seriously considering applying to PhD history programs, most likely for admission in fall 2021. I'm an older student (late 30s) and my career has been focused in architectural history up to this point. I love research and writing, and have done a significant amount of it in my career, but I've lost my interest in the built environment. I've always been an amateur social and cultural historian and want to focus on that in a professional capacity. It seems that going on for my PhD is a m
  6. My research field is Chinese history, but I am also interested in interdisciplinary approaches to cultural history. So far I have applied to and am waiting on history PhD programs with a strong interdisciplinary base, as well as East Asian studies (EALC/EALAC) programs. My previous training (undergrad, masters) was in history, and my supervisor assured me that I would still be able to be hired as a historian even if I'd graduate with an EALC degree (because I majored in history during my undergraduate and MA studies). While I am very attracted to EALC programs, which would allow me to in
  7. I was told by the academic coordinator, earlier in Feb., that students would be notified about acceptance or rejection for the public history master's by the end of February. I know it's only March 6, but I still haven't heard anything back yet. I reached out last friday and haven't gotten a response... am I waitlisted? I'm unsure if I should try to get in touch with the professor that I have previously spoken to.. or if I should just sit and wait... Please help or any advice is greatly appreciated!
  8. Hello everyone, I am planning to apply for the global history MA program at Freie Universität Berlin. I have been reading very mixed reviews on the program over the internet. It will be great if someone who is/was a student of the program could share their reviews and opinions about the program. Others who are also familiar with the program are welcome to share their views. I have graduated from an Indian University (University of Delhi). It will be really helpful if there is someone from the same university or another Indian graduate (from any university) who had appllied to germany
  9. I was accepted to the history MA program at CU Boulder and the history PhD program at UNC Chapel Hill. I study pre-modern Japanese military history (to put it simply) and either path I take, I intend on pursuing a doctorate, with the ultimate goal of tenure track position down the road. I know in academia, your pedigree does have a (rather unfortunately strong) affect, and graduating from a prestigious university can help stack the cards in your favor for such a competitive job market. Of course, it doesn't guarantee anything, but being fully aware of how unemployable a pre-modern Japanese his
  10. Hello All, I recently graduated from my undergraduate degree in Environmental Science in the US but after having worked in the field for a few months, I have found a new passion in Art History and conservation. I am looking to apply for a master's program, but it requires 4 credits in Art History classes, of which I have none. I am wondering if it is worth finding a post-bac program that would fulfill these 4 credits or if it would be better to take 4 individual classes at a college in order to fulfill them? I am not a US citizen so it would be almost impossible to fulfill these cred
  11. Hey everyone, I'm somewhat out of place here, i am only in undergrad, and am still planning my transfer to a 4-year institution. I am planning ahead, and I know career wise i want to go into academia. My main areas of interest are art history (especially when theory is involved), and history. With regards to job prospects does getting a double major in undergrad in art history and history, help seem more attractive to academic job prospects? I will double major in history and art history even if it doesn't, because i like both areas, and I plan to eventually get a PhD in one of those disc
  12. Ok, it is different everywhere in the planet, but we sort of have to do it. Those of us who sat for comps, let's pass on our tips, what worked for us and what didn't, for upcoming fellow exam-takers. Some guiding questions (not binding, of course) Can you briefly describe the format of your exam? (No need to name school) How did you organize your fields? How did you organize your notes? What have you learned in the process? What was useless/didn't work? My two cents Format: Three fields (one modern, one colonial, one of my choice), 24hours open b
  13. Hi all! So I just recently graduated with my first masters degree in library science. It was exciting and I finished with great grades - 3.82 CGPA on a 4.0 scale. However, my ultimate passions are history and classics. I did a double major for them in my undergrad. In fact, I want to go back to do a second masters in classics or history (in 2 years as I would like to work and earn some work experience and money first so I can get married) and probably get a PhD after that. The problem is, my undergrad CGPA was mediocre - 3.14 on a 4.3 scale. I had an average of about 3.4 in the las
  14. Hi all, I've applied to history PhD programs a few times at this point and have been rejected from my top choices. I'm now finishing up my master's, but I think my writing sample is the weakest part of my application. Any advice on what makes a great history writing sample? Also, does anyone have any suggestions on where to get it edited? Thank you.
  15. I'm fairly new to grad cafe so sorry if I'm doing this wrong but I need some advice. I'm an aspiring history professor but I only have one language under my belt (French) and know that I definitely need to pick up Latin before applying to Ph.D. programs. I also have an average undergraduate background and would like to improve my chances of getting into a top 30 history Ph.D. program. That being said, I realize that some of the programs I'm applying to will be a reach. I'm looking into getting my MA in either history or medieval studies. I'll detail some of my academic background below
  16. Hi everyone, This might be early to ask given that I am just finishing second year of undergrad but I just want to know if there is anything I should do now or soon to strengthen my grad application to Oxford and Cambridge for their MSt and MPhil in history. I also have a bunch of questions as well! So I currently study history and minor in political science at a highly reputable Canadian university (if that matters). I have a 3.8 GPA right now and I expect I can maintain this if not raise it a bit by the time I graduate. I don't really have an history related ECs or work experi

    Vanderbilt 2019

    Is anyone accepting a Vanderbilt offer? Or anyone who is already studying there? I just want some feedback/opinion on their History program as I am contemplating their offer.
  18. I'm in 3rd year and looking to do a history MA at Oxbridge or one of the Ivies. I was wondering if they look at your course load in admissions? Will they penalize you if you took a class less for a semester or two? I took some classes in the summer and as a result I took one less class then the usual. I was thinking of doing it again next year but wanted to check if that would cause some problems. Thanks everyone!
  19. Has anybody heard from William and Mary? I checked the response search and there aren't any history PhD entries. I have one acceptance but WM is my top choice and I want to hear from them first.
  20. Some schools never seem to have anyone post that they received an interview request.
  21. I am looking to apply to MA programs in the museums studies realm, but the funding has been pretty lacking thus far. I know there are programs out there with assistantships, fellowships, or other sources of funding, but I have not been able to dig any up. I am flexible to travel anywhere really, so that is not a barrier. If anyone could point me in the right direction or give their opinion that would be wonderful. I have found amazing topics on Grad Cafe regarding schools with funding for other programs, but I have not found any great topics on museum studies.
  22. Hi all, I thought I would start a new thread since last year's was created about this time a year ago. (Amazing how fast a year flies by!!!) A little introduction - I'm a longtime lurker with a few years of museum experience and several presentations under my belt. I'll be targeting MA programs in the history of medicine as well as MD programs. I look forward to meeting everyone!
  23. Hey! For those who were asked to interview with their POI for Yale's history PhD, had you spoken with your POI before submitting the application? (I spoke to my POI a lot before submission, and am wondering if I didn't get asked to interview because a) I've already talked to them a bunch, or b) I'm not a competitive candidate for the program) Thanks!

  25. Hello, I am applying for 2019 MA in History at U of T. Is it acceptable to go over the word limit for a 500 statement of interest to 700 ? I have been trying really really hard to bring my word count down but I find it so hard to explain my background, my motivation and my thesis topic in 500 words. Just wondering if its a big NO NO to go over the word limit or generally acceptable ? Thanks in advance,
