In practice, these two programs are closely related. In addition to the focused SHP and STEM programs, the department offers a general Ph.D. in history that allows students to specialize in any geographical, temporal, or topical area of history adequately covered by departmental faculty. The department also joins with the Law School to offer an M.A. in history/J.D. double degree program.
