Graduate Handbook:

The Digital History Ph.D. Program's Graduate Handbook is a useful guide to our doctoral program and serves as a reference tool for navigating administrative and bureaucratic procedures.

Forms for Current Students:

  • Course of Study Form - Formalizes an advisory committee and plan of study. Typically is completed in the Spring of your first year.
  • Independent Study Request - Due either Nov 1st (Fall) or April 1st (Spring) the semester prior to taking the course.
  • Graduate Readings Request - Due either Nov 1st (Fall) or April 1st (Spring) the semester prior to taking the course.
  • GS2 - Plan of Study - Students must file a GS2 Plan of Study or graduate degree curriculum (available in iROAR) early in their 4th semester. This plan represents your individual curriculum as recommended by your advisory committee and should follow the curriculum outlined on your course of study.
  • 36 Hour Review - The Digital History PhD program requires that all students be evaluated to determine if the student will be permitted to continue in the doctoral program. The evaluation happens in the semester in which students achieve 36 units. For full time students, this is typically the spring of their second year. This evaluation will normally take place and students will be notified of the result by April 1st . This form initiates this process and should be filled out early in the Spring by the student and sent to their advisor.
  • Field Exam Result - Used by faculty to record the result of the written field exam in the primary, concentration, or digital field.
