Graduate Programs

The Clements Center offers a range of programs for graduate students that address the teaching and research of history, strategy, and statecraft. 


  • The Clements Summer Seminar in History and Statecraft brings together graduate students from leading universities (non-UT) to explore the connections between statecraft and history. Sessions are also devoted to professional development for academic and policy careers.
  • The Graduate Portfolio Program in Security Studies is a transcript-recognized credential for students who complete an interdisciplinary focus in security studies. 
  • The Graduate Fellows Program builds a multi-disciplinary community of PhD students by bringing them together for monthly meetings to discuss research and listen to guest speakers. 
  • The Student Professional Development Fund supports students who have secured unpaid internships in fields related to defense and foreign policy. This helps launch students in careers in national security. Click here to view information about internship opportunities. 
  • Grants in History and Statecraft are awarded to UT students and professors for research and presentations at academic conferences.
