The department has one commencement ceremony a year, held in the Spring. History students graduating in Spring, Summer or either the proceeding or following Fall are welcome, we read names and thesis titles and the ceremony is followed by a reception. We are currently awaiting the schedule, but expect to post it here and announce it by the end of October.
