Students seeking the MA in History of Ideas may thus elect a professional option or a research option at University of Texas at Dallas. Students with plans for doctoral study should choose the research option. The research option requires students to demonstrate proficiency in an approved foreign language and to complete a portfolio.
Students concentrate on the study of philosophy and intellectual and cultural history, with a focus on modern Europe and America.
History of Ideas is an interdisciplinary program of study, so students take the majority of their coursework in History of Ideas courses, but must also take two seminars each in both Literature and Visual and Performing Arts.
Graduates of the program seek positions such as: teacher/educator, historian, researcher, historical site/museum curator, public history administrator, public policy administrator, archivist, writer and manager for public and private historical organizations. Career settings may include higher education, non-profits, cultural and historical organizations, government agencies, international development organizations, museums and archives, business/corporate entities and independent consulting.
