History Graduate Program Curricula

The Department of History offers a Doctor of Philosophy degree, a Master of Arts degree in History, a Master of Arts degree in Public History and a Certificate of Advanced Study (C.A.S.) in Public History. In addition, it participates in several interdepartmental programs, such as Social Studies, Liberal Studies, and Library Science.

The Ph.D. program aims to prepare students for academic careers as scholars and teachers as well as for profession opportunities in research, history and media, and policy analysts and other pursuits in the public and private sectors. The program is interdisciplinary in nature and is organized by thematic fields (Public Policy, International History, Work, Gender, and Culture). The M.A. program serves several purposes. It is a stepping stone to the doctorate; it is a qualifying degree for secondary-school teaching; and it is a way for interested students to extend their liberal education. The CAS and the MA in Public History are designed to train professional historians who will work as curators, researchers, and archivists outside conventional academic settings.
