The History department offers numerous opportunities for graduate students to present their research, develop career skills, and cultivate their professional networks.
History Graduate Student Fellowship in Special Collections and University Archives
This fellowship opportunity is open to both MA (rising second-years and above) and PhD students. Over the course of two terms, the fellow will work closely with special collection staff and earn eight credits of Library Independent Study as well as a stipend. For more information, contact HistDGS@uoregon.edu.
Graduate students regularly present their research to the academic community in the UO Grad Forum.
History department graduate students also often present their research to a public audience in our monthly History Pub series.
History department graduate students have the option of designing and teaching their own course during Summer Session.
Graduate Teaching Initiative
The UO Teaching Engagement Program’s Graduate Teaching Initiative offers UO graduate students structured and rigorous, yet flexible, pathways to develop as college teachers. The program is meant to develop inclusive, engaged, and research-led teachers who will, in turn, help shape the campus teaching culture.
