Chair: Christopher DeRosa, Department of History and Anthropology

Master of Arts in History (M.A.)

This program is designed to accommodate various types of students. Those who wish to specialize in European History, the History of United States, or the program’s new specialization, World History, and those who may wish to pursue a doctoral degree may elect to concentrate in any of those areas and to complete a master’s thesis. Others with a more general interest in the subject of history may elect to pursue a more broad-based program with the option of taking a comprehensive exam instead of writing a master’s thesis. The program is designed not only for recent college graduates, but also for secondary school teachers of history and social studies, and professionals in government, the military, and business.

Of the thirty credits required for this program, up to six graduate credits may be transferred from another institution.
