The Tufts History Department encourages 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.

The Tufts History Graduate Program cultivates academic excellence, and prepares students for leading roles in education and research, as well as in the fields of business, administration and world affairs.

The Tufts Graduate Program offers the M.A. degree in History or in History and Museum Studies. It also offers individual courses to students earning a certificate in Museum Studies. The Ph.D. is offered in Modern South Asia and Global History.
