Career Development Resources

With resources made available from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the UC Davis History Department earned the American Historical Association's Career Diversity Implementation Grant, through which we work to help graduate students develop and cultivate key occupational and academic skills. The History Department's Career Development and Diversity Team serves graduate students at any level in the program, and encourages creating a strong support structure throughout your academic career. On an ongoing basis, the team develops and coordinates internships, seminar sessions, workshops, and lectures geared to better prepare students to enter a variety of career paths.

American Historical Association Career Diversity

"The AHA's Career Diversity for Historians initiative is working to better prepare graduate students and early-career historians for a range of career options, within and beyond the academy. With generous funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the AHA and three dozen departments from around the country are working to explore the culture and practice of graduate education and how it can better support the changing needs of PhD students. Check back often as we develop tools and resources and provide updates on our activities."
