Welcome to graduate history at UNM! The Department of History has a nationally-recognized graduate program that offers MA and PhD degrees. Our graduates earn positions in academia, the public history arena, and other professional venues. The department's special strengths in the history of Latin America and the American West complement its strengths in the history of the United States and medieval and modern Europe. Working closely with faculty members and fellow graduate students, MA and PhD students develop the background, skills, and insights to make significant contributions to the realm of historical scholarship. Please take a look at the various resources on this page and, if you have further questions, please contact the Director of Graduate Studies, Shannon Withycombe, at dgshistory@unm.edu.
