With a program and faculty that are recognized regionally, nationally, and internationally, the history department at the University of Miami is dedicated to producing Ph.D.s of the highest quality.  Our selective program offers close, individualized training for the next generation of teachers and researchers who will shape and lead the historical profession.  While we have particular strengths in the histories of Latin America and the Caribbean, Europe, and the United States, our faculty shares interests that cut across geographies: gender and sexuality; religion; race and ethnicity; law; and economy, among others.  Additionally, we have a strong commitment to interdisciplinarity, as we actively maintain bridges to other departments, programs, and centers at the University of Miami.  Our graduate students are encouraged to take advantage of these dynamic scholarly connections as they cultivate their own intellectual pursuits.
