Teaching experience. Internships.
UToledo graduate history students have a distinct advantage over their peers entering the job market, thanks to the hands-on teaching and internship experiences we offer.
The University of Toledo master’s and doctoral programs in history are committed to the values of a liberal arts education:
Faculty mentors. UToledo master's and Ph.D. students work closely with faculty in a collegial setting that places a high priority on individual studies, archival research and teaching experience. Our program’s small size allows the faculty to work one-on-one with graduate students and mentor them from their first day in the program through graduation.
Invaluable teaching experience. We provide our graduate students with a wide variety of teaching experiences before they enter the job market.
