About the Program:

The History Graduate Program leads to the Master of Arts degree and features course offerings in four tracks:

  • American History;
  • Public History;
  • Global History;
  • and Legal History.

Our program builds students’ historical understanding either to augment skills in teaching or in public history institutions or to secure such positions. It also prepares graduates for doctoral-level studies in American history and welcomes individuals fascinated by the past who wish to deepen their appreciation of its many aspects.

Learning goals include expanded knowledge of history and historiography, increased familiarity with historical theories, enhanced skills in interpreting primary sources, producing publishable-quality research papers, and for public history track students, developing the advanced skills in several specialty areas of public history practice.
