This may be done using either top-level Mathematica code:

  CommonDefaultFormatTypes -> {"Output" -> TraditionalForm}

or through the Option Inspector dialog, with the scope indicator on that
dialog set to "notebook".  The CommonDefaultFormatTypes option appears
under the categorical listing as follows:

    Cell Options
        New Cell Defaults
