The Department of History is extremely proud of the the tradition of excellence set by our majors and graduate students. We honor many of these achievements every year at the Department Awards and Scholarships Ceremony, where we distribute 14 annual awards funded through the generosity of alumni, faculty, and friends of the department.
Traditionally, our students have also been very successful in winning campus-wide awards. For the past three years, a history student has won the award for Outstanding Graduate Student in The School of the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences. See below for a list of recent awardees.
The department is also proud of our students' engagement in scholarship and the study of history outside the classroom. In addition to our undergraduate history club, History Forum, our majors and graduate students have historically been well represented at Scholars Day and some have traveled to present at undergraduate and graduate level conferences throughout the region.
