Placement Information
University of Minnesota, Department of History

Since 2004, 130 students have completed PhDs in History at the University.  We have employment data on all but 15 of these students.  Despite a tough job market, 84% of our 130 graduates since 2004 are in academic or academic related appointments; 64% (83 out of 130) hold tenure-track or tenured academic appointments.  Our graduates hold tenured and tenure-track appointments at major state flagship universities, elite private universities, and leading liberal arts colleges, as well as at smaller regional, state university branch campuses.  A small, but growing number of students use their PhDs to pursue non-academic careers in public history, museums and libraries, the non-profit sector and NGOs and business.
