Considering a career in education, law, business or library science? Planning to pursue a doctorate? There’s one degree offered by Seton Hall University that can prepare you for any of the above — and many other careers, too: the History degree (M.A.).


Our program offers four concentrations (U.S., European, Global or Catholic history), allowing students to follow their individual interests. Students work alongside professors to conduct original historical research and engage in significant historical debates and fields of study. And our rich library collections in American, Italian, Russian and Irish history help students develop their unique theses. This four-semester program offered by Seton Hall University is designed for completion in two years, but part-time study is also available.

The programme

The 30 credit master's degree allows students to choose either an examinations track or a thesis track. All students complete a course called The Historian's Craft, which introduces the art of historical thinking, research, and writing. From there, they select from a wide- ranging array of courses in U.S., European, (with titles like Dante and His World, U.S. Military History, History of Modern Japan, and even New Jersey History). Students interested in going on to pursue doctoral studies are strongly encouraged to undertake a thesis as part of a six- credit research sequence.
