Students may take HIST 81070 more than once.
Students working in U.S. history must complete HIST 82070 and HIST 82071.
Students' electives must include at least four seminars/colloquia. Outside of the focus field, students elect one general and one specialized field. General fields include Africa, Asia, Europe and the United States. Specialized fields explore a particular subfield (e.g., history of American foreign relations) or methodology (e.g., cultural history) across a broad sweep of time and are designed to deepen students' knowledge of their general field.
Students may apply special topics courses HIST 79095, HIST 79195 and/or HIST 79295 to their focus field requirements with the approval of the graduate coordinator.
Each doctoral candidate, upon admission to candidacy, must register for HIST 89199 for a total of 30 credit hours. It is expected that a doctoral candidate will thereafter register for HIST 89299 until all requirements for the degree have been met.
After completing all of the requirements, students must successfully complete written and oral examinations in the three elected fields of history.
