Directories

The AHA’s directories provide guides to many aspects of the profession. They allow historians to find examples of scholarship from the past and view snapshots of the profession as it exists today.

The Directory of History Departments and Organizations features comprehensive information about historians and programs. The AHA Directory Online provides for detailed searching of faculty/staff and their field specializations, as well as the ability to do benchmarking comparisons between departments. To add your institution to the Directory, or to make updates to your current listing, see the Listing in the Directory page.

The most comprehensive information available on the state of doctoral education in history, formerly known as the Directory of History Doctoral Programs in the United States and Canada, can now be found as part of the main AHA Directory Online. The listings for departments offering PhD degrees include specific descriptions of the programs and statistics.

The Directory of History Dissertations contains more than 55,000 dissertations that have been completed or are currently in progress in the United States and Canada since 1873.

The Directory of History Journals is currently on hiatus. We hope to have it back up in the not-too-distant future.
