Graduate coursework at the University of Georgia prepares students to be broadly engaged with diverse chronological, geographical, and thematic issues in history, while simultaneously developing
core knowledge within a major area of interest. Specific course requirements for the MA and PhD degrees are available in the Guidebook; students develop a specific plan of study in consultation with their major advisor.
Graduate faculty regularly offer seminars, colloquia, and independent reading courses. A list of all courses offered is available in the UGA Bulletin (see link below),
although the Bulletin does not list special topics courses. For examples of special topics courses currently or previously offered, see the Current Schedule and Sample Syllabuses links below.
