Overview

The History program from  University of North Carolina Wilmington  offers concentrations in U.S. History, European History, Global History, and Public History. A non-thesis option in the geographic concentrations is available to students who intend to pursue teaching careers at the secondary and community college levels and to those who prefer not to pursue a research-intensive program.

Career

Public History students who intend to seek work at historic sites, museums, and archives may opt to pursue that concentration's Professional Track. Students in all concentrations may choose to pursue a thesis option in preparation for further graduate study or if they enjoy the challenges and rewards of a more intensive research and writing experience. 

The History Department enjoys an excellent record of placing its graduates into history-related jobs and selective doctoral programs. Finally, the innovative online M.A. program for professional history educators serves the career needs of experienced teachers, museum educators, librarians, and archivists who seek to augment their knowledge of history itself rather than pursue a graduate education degree.
