The Tufts History Department encourages our graduate students to study subjects and problems that transcend traditional academic constraints and consider national and regional histories in the broadest possible contexts. Our collaborative approach places an emphasis on global or inter-regional connections and comparisons, as well as on the use of interdisciplinary methods. A more detailed description of the program requirements can be found in the Graduate Student Handbook.
Our graduate programs cultivate academic excellence, and prepare students for leading roles in education and research, as well as in the fields of business, administration and world affairs.
The Department of History offers an MA in History or in History and Museum Studies. It also offers individual courses to students earning a certificate in Museum Studies. The PhD is offered in Modern South Asia and Global History.
