The Graduate Program in History at Saint Louis University is one of the oldest in the country, granting its first Ph.D. in 1919. Today we continue our tradition of excellence by training students in a variety of historical fields. We are a U.S. News and World Report Top 100 History Doctoral Program. The reputation of our program is based, above all, on the strength of our faculty, whose research and publications have won national and international recognition. We invite you to learn more about our program either through this website or by contacting us directly.
We have Ph.D. programs in three specialization areas: Medieval European History, Early Modern European History, and United States History. M.A. programs are also available in these three areas as well as Modern European History and World History.
