Graduate students in the Division for Late Medieval and Reformation Studies receive their degrees in History. For general achievement outcomes please refer to the History Graduate Program's assessment page.
In addition to the requirements of the graduate program in History, Division students have to fulfill the following for their degrees in Early Modern European History:
* additional coursework: Division students attend History 696f (Early Modern Europe) every semester when they are in
residence in Tucson
* reading knowledge of three second languages (usually Latin, German, and French; in some cases Spanish or Italian)
Before Division students embark on long-term archival research in Europe, they complete:
* paleography studies and courses
* language courses, e.g. summer courses of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD)
* exploratory trips to the relevant archives (for which some financial assistance is available through the Division)
Division students have been successful in applying for major grants to conduct archival research in Europe. Since 1989 Division students have been awarded 15 Fulbright, 3 DAAD, 1 Mellon, 1 Chateaubriand, and 5 Institute for European History (Mainz, Germany) fellowships.
The Division for Late Medieval and Reformation Studies usually has about a dozen graduate students (both MA and PhD). For those graduate students who chose to pursue an academic career after completing their degrees, the placement rate has been 100 percent. Please see our list of alumni to view job placements.
