Approximately 40 graduate students currently study, teach and conduct research in the Department of History at Western Michigan University. They come from many places – California, Chicago, Georgia, Kansas, Korea, as well as Michigan – but they have a shared passion for history in all its forms. Students serve as members of departmental and university committees, and they run a very active History Graduate Student Organization. History graduate students have won every award offered at WMU and won Fulbright grants and other awards. Learn more about their accomplishments in Scholarly Recognition.
