The Department of History offers both the M.A. and the Ph.D. in history, emphasizing its two focused Ph.D. programs, in Social History & Policy (SHP) and in the History of Science, Technology, Environment & Medicine (STEM). 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. Informally, students can also combine graduate study in History with the certificate or degree programs of the Mandel Center for Nonprofit Organizations.
