About

The History program at Arkansas State University trains students in historical research methods, historiography, and historical content in global, public, and US history.

Overview

Program Description

Students in the History program at Arkansas State University may choose a general MA degree (which commonly incorporates more US history courses) or an emphasis in either public history or global history.

The public history emphasis focuses on teaching students to be historians who are strong academics but who also engage the greater public. Graduates with a MA in public history often go on to pursue a PhD in public history or heritage studies, work at museums or heritage sites, or apply for careers in historic preservation or other public history-related professions.

The global history emphasis is for students who are interested in studying big questions, especially those pertaining to the processes, events, and people who have created an increasingly interconnected world. Students will engage with the works of important historians in the field, theory, and historiography while honing their ability to research and write as global historians themselves. This program is aimed at students who want to subsequently pursue global or non-US history PhD programs, who want to teach high school world history at an advanced level, who want to teach world history in community colleges, and who are interested in foreign service careers.
