Graduate Study in History

With strengths in Public History, United States, and European Social and Cultural History with specialties in Urban history, Digital history, Women’s and Gender history, and Transnational history, the Loyola History Department offers master's programs in history and public history; a master's program in public history and library information science (jointly with Dominican University); and a doctoral program in history and public history.

Led by a diverse and nationally-acclaimed faculty, our curriculum is designed to develop a deep understanding of the human past and to provide students with insight into the world in which they live through a perspective of time and change. Loyola History graduate students also have excellent opportunities for learning and exploration outside of the classroom.

Infused by our Jesuit mission, we support study that deepens our understanding of the human condition, reflects a shared commitment to a just and humane society, and puts knowledge to work in the world.
