The department offers a graduate program in two broad areas: United States and Atlantic History, with tracks in the history of the United States and in the history of the Atlantic World, and Holocaust History and Genocide Studies, with tracks in Holocaust History and in Genocide Studies.  

Graduate course work includes reading seminars (colloquia), research seminars, and individual tutorials for both reading and research purposes. Graduate students may also register in upper-division undergraduate courses at a graduate level that requires more intensive work. First- and second-year students in the doctoral program take three courses each semester, one of which must be expressly devoted to the production of a research paper. Faculty advisers help incoming students design their programs, which may include courses in other departments.
