Ph.D.s by Texas State Graduates

In 2001, our master of arts program gained national recognition for being a leading master of arts "feeder" program that produces graduates who successfully complete doctoral programs in history at other American universities. [American Historical Association, Perspectives, 42:1, 41-44]. This proud tradition continues today.
