Letter from the Chair
Prospective Students Information
The History department is proud to support a vibrant and active graduate student community. Our students have worked diligently to put together information for prospective and incoming students on living and working in the Urbana-Champaign area.
We recommend that any student interested in our program take the time to visit with our faculty and students, either in person or through email communications. We welcome questions at any stage of the process.
To schedule a campus visit, please contact the Director of Graduate Studies. We recommend that students consult with the Director regarding the date and length of their visit as faculty and graduate student availability varies based on the academic schedule.
The department has limited funds available to defray the costs of visits by students who have been offered admission to the program and are deciding whether to accept their offer. Information regarding such visits will be included in the admission letter.
