Professional Opportunities

We offer a variety of awards to deserving students, provided by the department, the University, and private funding organizations.

Selected graduate students can also serve as teaching assistants to increase their professional preparation in the classroom and enhance their appeal for a future teaching position.

Finally, one-on-one conversations with history professionals--not only among our faculty, but with staff of the California State Parks system, local museums, and libraries--aid the graduate student in expanding job horizons and finding his or her niche in the historical profession.
