Easiest way to find out TT placement rate for PhD programs?


Recommended Posts

Some history grad programs list recent years' PhD graduates and what jobs they've ended up in. Is there an easier way to find out which history graduate programs have the best tenure-track job placement rates? Any sort of list or database that compiles this information?

Yes, there was a study published not too long ago.

What @lordtiandao linked upthread is a pretty good resource. You just have to search for potential POIs (I guess you could also just search every faculty member in whatever department) and then google the names of their students. I've actually had really good luck with this method. Otherwise, no, schools would have to publish the data on their websites if it were available at all.

Also refer to this study about school prestige and TT placement. Basically more prestigious schools have better placement, with the top 25 schools accounting for 71- 86% of all TT positions placements.

Ah, @TheHessianHistorian, this is the study in question.
