About the Program

Tailored for individuals seeking career progression outside the realm of a history Ph.D., this terminal MA program offers a comprehensive platform to hone critical analytical skills—both written and oral—within a historical context.

Whether pursued in residence or fully online, our program caters to diverse schedules and preferences. The program places a strong emphasis on practical skill development without the requirement of a thesis-length project. Instead, students are guided through the creation of a Capstone Portfolio, showcasing their mastery of historical analysis and research.

This versatile degree opens doors to a multitude of career paths, making it an invaluable asset in fields such as education (K-12 or community college), public history, digital humanities, journalism and social media, public affairs, library studies, governmental and non-governmental agencies, social work, campaign management, community organizing, genealogy, archival administration, corporate management, and industry consulting.
