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. 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!

Pheeraphong Jampee

Phee (Pheeraphong) Jampee is a Ph.D. Candidate. Phee is researching Colonial and Post-Colonial Southeast Asian history, particularly Indochinese refugees and women and Thai nationalism in the post-WWII period from 1945 until 1975. As a native speaker of Thai and its minority dialects, Phee has a personal connection with mainland southeast Asian history, in particular, the topics of nationalism and the creation of the Thai identity in the aftermath of the Second World War. Phee chose to be a graduate student at NDSU because he wanted to research deeper into Southeast Asian history and share his knowledge with other students and scholars. In Southeast Asian History, the expectations concerning nationalism, gender, and refugees in the twentieth century are endless, and that is what excites Phee most about his field. There are indeed plenty of sources that have been sitting in archives around the world untouched for many reasons, and that is what makes Phee excites most about his research.
