In 2017, the Brown History Department became one of 36 programs nationwide to take part in a series of Career Diversity for Historians Faculty Institutes initiated by the American Historical Association and funded by the Mellon Foundation. This project is aimed at reshaping graduate training at both the MA and PhD levels to meet the shifting landscape of higher education and to more accurately reflect the diverse careers which our alums and students already pursue. Brown degree holders have gone on to edit and write for major publications; to direct public policy leaders and lead nonprofits; to perform historical consulting and work in public history; and to direct educational programs at every level. They also hold academic positions around the globe. Brown students have an increasing number of opportunities to develop a deep resume of professional skills alongside their training in research and writing; to aid in the advising process, links to some of these resources are below.
