What We Offer

We offer a master's in history, as well as the option to pursue a graduate certificate in public history. Most students receive funding packages, including tuition and a stipend.

Additionally, the History Graduate Student Association promotes student-faculty communication, provides students with a sense of community outside the classroom, and offers leadership opportunities. Since 1998, the History Graduate Student Association has organized an annual research conference with student presenters from Virginia Tech and many other master's and doctoral programs.
