The Department of History offers the master's degree with coursework in five culture areas: Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, and United States.
Our master's students pursue successful professional careers or continue their education in a wide variety of academic disciplines. Past master's students have gone on to undertake PhD's at prestigious domestic and international institutions, have entered high-ranked law programs or have taken appointments with government departments such as the DIA, FEMA and the State Department.
Master's students may pursue one of three options: the Report Option, Thesis Option, or Public History Option. A fully online MA is available for the Report Option as well.
Students wishing to pursue the PhD in Atlantic History must make a separate application to the doctorate upon completing their master's. There are also several combined MA/PhD programs.
