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.
