History Graduate Programs
Thank you for your interest in the graduate program in History at North Dakota State University.
Our program offers Ph.D., M.A., and M.S. degrees. Most graduate courses are held during the workday, but a number of courses are offered in the late afternoon and evening each semester to accommodate working professionals within driving distance of NDSU. Online courses are not offered.
Prior to formal application, we encourage prospective students to start an e-mail dialogue with one or two non-emeriti faculty members in your field of interest. You will need to have at least one faculty member who is interested in working with you before you apply.
You must apply electronically for graduate admission. The electronic application is available online at the NDSU Graduate School website: https://www.ndsu.edu/gradschool/prospective_students/.
We accept and evaluate applications for admission throughout the year, but preference for financial support is given to completed applications received by Feb. 15 for admission for the following fall semester.
Admissions decisions are usually available about a month after all of your materials have been received by the Graduate School.
We wish you the best of luck as you start the application process!
