The Master of Arts in History combines the development of research and teaching skills, taking advantage of the department’s rich faculty and scholarly resources in the areas of colonial and modern Latin America, medieval Europe and Byzantine history, early modern and modern Europe, colonial America and U.S history.
Graduate students in history acquire substantive historical knowledge while gaining experience analyzing and presenting material. In addition to research, students develop the ability to communicate research and arguments whether in writing, debate, or through teaching. There are also opportunities for more formal teaching, through partnership with faculty members in teaching undergraduate courses; a limited number of our graduate students have the opportunity to serve as paid Teaching Assistants, and more are able to assist in teaching in other capacities.
10 courses, or 30 semester credits
Proof of proficiency in at least one foreign language
