About

The Department of History at Old Dominion University offers courses of study leading to the Master of Arts with a major in history.

Overview

The Department of History at Old Dominion University also offers a Master of Arts degree. This degree is available through a thesis or an exam option. Both are 30-credit programs and both require the completion of HIST 600, Historical Theory and Practice. Students take courses from nearly every field of history, with the ability to emphasize a particular geographic region or time period through electives.

Learning outcomes

In the History Department we have a strong faculty who are active teacher-scholars pursuing research, publishing books and articles, and winning awards and grants. They bring the latest methods and historical interpretations to the classroom. The Department's strengths lie within American and European history, but we also have faculty members who cover Latin America, Africa, Asia, and Russia. Currently we have seventeen faculty members who offer graduate courses and fifty to sixty students enrolled in the program during any given semester. Classes are small, usually eight to fifteen students, and most often meet at night to accommodate the many students who work.
