¿Qué aprenderé?

The innovative Ph.D. in World History at St. John’s University redefines and reclaims the vital roles that professionals with advanced humanities training play in our complex, global society. It combines traditional academic rigor in research with an emphasis on new pedagogies, interdisciplinary study, technology, collaborative work, community engagement, and a unique approach to internship training.

Our program distinguishes itself with internship rotations that allow you to apply your knowledge and training in history to practice in the community. You have the opportunity to gain valuable professional experience in fields such as:

  • Film-making and digital media
  • Libraries and archives
  • Museums and galleries
  • Non-profit organizations, non-governmental organizations, and governmental agencies
  • Parks and heritage tourism
  • Publishing, editing, and production
  • Secondary and post-secondary teaching

The Department of History’s full-time faculty members are active scholars with fields of expertise that include African, American, Asian, European, Latin American, and Middle Eastern studies. As a doctoral student at St. John’s, you’ll benefit from close mentoring relationships with these professors and be part of our vibrant and diverse intellectual community. We also offer flexibility to accommodate both traditional full-time doctoral students and working professionals seeking a degree part-time.

Career Outcomes

The communication skills, analytical thinking, and historical perspectives you’ll gain through the Ph.D. program in World History will prepare you for tenure-track faculty positions in history as well as careers in museums, libraries, cultural agencies and institutions, consulting firms, and digital and traditional media companies. The distinctive socially-aware, problem-solving, and service-oriented education you’ll receive at St. John’s will help you excel in the areas of teaching, public history, and public service. Thanks to the internship experience built in to the program, you’ll be entering the job market with not only an advanced degree and body of original research, but also professional experience in a field that suits your interests and goals.

You'll meet once a month in our doctoral colloquium to present research and publications and gather for workshops and roundtable discussions. You’ll also be able to gain professional training through planning the History department's international World History Theory and Practice conference and through joining the World History Group that discusses teaching history in the core curriculum. For teaching experience, you may shadow faculty members teaching undergraduate courses. Through St. John’s Center for Teaching and Learning, you’ll have access to professional development workshops in grant writing, fundraising, digital humanities, web and social media marketing, and organizational leadership. And you’ll always have the individual attention of the faculty members in the Department of History who will work with you on articulating and developing your career aspirations.
