What are our current graduate students doing?
Our graduate students are engaged in diverse research projects under the guidance of our accomplished faculty members. Research trips have taken students as far away as Germany, Italy, Poland, and India and as close as special collections at the Merrill-Cazier Library. Many of our graduates gain valuable teaching experience as Graduate Assistants, and others receive hands-on experience through our internship program, including placements at the Huntington Library, Hill Aerospace Museum, and the Bear River Land Conservancy.
What are our recent graduate students doing?
Our program has an 80% placement rate. Recent graduates have gone on to teach in elementary, middle, and secondary schools. Others have gone on to pursue PhD programs at University of California-Berkeley, University of Virginia, University of Montana, University of Oklahoma, Temple University, and Texas A&M. Students who enter the workforce have gone on to take jobs at the National Women's History Museum, Hyrum Museum, and the International Rescue Committee in Dallas.
