Prospective Students

Northwestern's Ph.D. program in History admits students in a broad variety of fields, including African history, American history, Asian history, European history, and Latin American history. We do not offer a separate M.A. program.

Prospective students are invited to learn more About the Program, to find out more about Admissions and Financial Aid, to read our Application FAQ, to peruse our Course Offerings, to examine the Cross-Field Strengths of our faculty, to investigate our Interdisciplinary Cluster Initiative, and to read about the Scholarly Environment in our program.

Please be aware that we do not require the submission of GRE scores for admission. Prospective students should also be aware that important information about program requirements can be found under Current Students.

Prospective graduates can join History's bus tour annually - it's held in the late winter/spring.
