Intellectual breadth, specialized scholarly competence, and excellence in teaching distinguish the graduate program in History at the University of Georgia. Internationally recognized and award-winning faculty serve as advisors for graduate students in a relatively small program, providing opportunities for individualized mentoring. Graduate students enjoy the academic resources of a major research university while developing marketable skills as educators. The program has an excellent record of placement, with graduates recently hired by such institutions as Appalachian State University, University of Arkansas, University of Tennessee, Tennessee-Wesleyan College, Beacon College, Wright State University, Emporia State University, Georgia Southern University, Kennesaw State University, University of Akron, University of Baltimore, and University of Georgia.
