Offered since 2005, the MA in History trains students to explore established and emerging historical problems.

The curriculum integrates traditional and interdisciplinary approaches to historical research with the development of digital and other professional skills needed to complete digital and other applied historical research projects.

Students take courses in historical methods, digital history, research methodology, and professional development. An MA in History prepares students to use their historical, digital, and applied training in a variety of teaching, research, and other positions, including museums, consulting firms, non-profit organizations, government agencies, or further graduate study for academic careers.
