Fall 2021 Graduate Admissions

In order to conserve the resources necessary to provide additional support to our current PhD students whose studies and research have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Department of History at Rutgers University will be admitting a much smaller number of new graduate students to begin study in Fall 2021.  In order to prioritize fields of scholarship critical to our current intersecting crises, the department will be targeting applicants interested in working on critical histories of race in the US and other regions of the world.  The department particularly welcomes work on race that intersects with histories of gender, health and medicine, colonialism, and environment.
