The Master of Arts in history is specifically designed to meet the needs of students from a variety of backgrounds and with many different career goals. The department offers graduate courses that cover a wide variety of topics and geographic areas, with a particular focus on the United States, Europe, and Latin America, as well as borderlands, transatlantic, and transnational history.


The history Master of Arts prepares our graduates to work in public history, as history instructors, or in any career requiring well-developed skills in research, critical thinking, and writing. Along with traditional colloquia and seminars focusing on a variety of geographic and chronological topics that develop our students' ability to research and write, we offer certificates in professional areas such as archival administration and public history. Those interested will also find skill-developing workshops and coursework on community college teaching, digital humanities, and GIS. For students who take a full course load (nine hours per term), the program can be completed in two years. However, many of our MA students are working professionals and enroll on a part-time basis. We offer most courses at night and permit a wide latitude in time-to-degree. Applicants should have either a BA in history, 18 hours in upper-division undergraduate history courses, or preparation in related subjects.
