Representing the graduate students of the History Department in the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, the Graduate History Alliance (GHA) with GSA support provides conference funding, social events, professionalization help, and the all-important coffee and donuts to its MA and PhD students. Officers are elected each year to represent History grad students and advocate for student issues in and out of the department.
Our biggest priority is making sure that student voices are heard and that MAs and PhDs alike are provided the resources, professionalization, and environment that they need to be successful in whatever they choose to do after Boston College. We collaborate closely with faculty to bring workshops, information on Alt-Ac careers, new initiatives in the study of history, and are constantly working to make sure that history students can maximize their time here!
