Department of History
Doctoral Fellowship in Policy History
The History Department at Bowling Green State University annually considers its graduate applicants for a Fellowship in Policy History in its Doctoral Program. The fellowship will be non-service in nature for the first year, and take the form of a teaching or research assistantship for three years thereafter. The successful applicant will receive a stipend (currently $10,500 per annum), a tuition waiver, and have her/his general fees paid.
Our selective program in Policy History focuses on the origins, implementation, and consequences of decision-making by government and private organizations. Doctoral students analyze the social contexts of policymaking and the consequences of policies, integrating political and institutional history with cutting edge work in social and cultural history. Students can specialize in European, Russian, Asian, Latin American, or North American history, and the program encourages comparative work among these areas. Within the Policy History Program, the Department has developed five areas of special strength:
· Economic Policy
· Foreign Policy/International Security
· Gender and Policy
· Social Policy
· The State and State Formation.
Students work closely with faculty mentors. Historians who are leaders in their fields assist doctoral students to become outstanding teachers and excellent scholars. The program has an outstanding placement rate in academic, tenure-track positions, government organizations, museums and historical societies. Since 1995, the program’s record of placement success has exceeded 90%.
