The History Profession

Visit this page to learn more about professional organizations that historians belong to, funding opportunities, news and blogs related to the profession, and job listings.

Transcription Opportunities

Many institutions have begun to turn to the general public for assistance in transcribing historical documents. Working with these documents are ideal for history majors - you can practice with your paleography skills, you can examine documents you would otherwise only be able to see if you traveled to the physical holding location, and you will be contributing worthwhile work to the field that will benefit all scholars. Visit our Transcriptions page to learn more.

History Learning Communities

The History Department hosts online Learning Communities for the undergraduate and graduate programs. The Learning Communities are collaborative learning spaces for all students in the history program. Here, students can engage with classmates and with department representatives. The community houses academic resources that will help students succeed in the undergraduate program. The Learning Community Facilitator and other faculty members hold live and pre-recorded webinars and podcasts on concepts such as historiography, research methods, the writing process, citing sources, and the capstone process.
