In certain cases students may apply credits they earned in 400-, 500-, and 800-series courses while undergraduates at Penn State toward a graduate degree at Penn State. After a student has been admitted to the Graduate School, and with the approval of the graduate program head, a maximum of 15 credits relevant to the graduate program of study that were not used to satisfy undergraduate requirements may be applied toward a graduate degree. Time limitations on the completion of the respective graduate degree program apply to these as well as to other credits.
Forms for transfer of credit may be obtained from the graduate program.

The job market of this discipline is contracting, and has continued to do so as the economy has worsened. The number of Ph.D.s awarded to history students has increased, while the jobs for people with this specific degree are decreasing. There also have not been any drops in the number of students enrolling in doctoral history programs, which means there will likely be too many candidates for too few jobs in the years to come, even as doctoral history students diversify their educations.
