MA Program in History

The Department of History offers a Master of Arts degree program designed to develop historians with special competence by systematic training in the content, methods, and interpretation of history.

Each degree program will vary, based on the individual student's particular fields of interest and purpose for pursuing graduate work. Regardless, the same level of scholarly competence and intellectual attainment is expected of all our MA students.
