History Graduate Student Association

The History Graduate Student Association at NC State is an organization devoted to the professional development of NC State's history and public history graduate students. We promote history and public history interests within our department and at our university. In addition to representing the History Department in NC State's graduate student government, HGSA organizes professional and social events such as conferences, presentations, and field trips. Our goal is to provide professional development while fostering a strong academic and social community within our department.

HGSA Events


Our social calendar was full this year and included Crafting and Coffee and Trivia nights, picnics, bike rides and a myriad of other events. But it wasn't all fun and games, we also had  advisory board meetings to plan out the year and prepare for our 2023 Graduate History Conference. Check out all we did in 2022 and 2023 here
