Students develop essential career skills, such as the ability to analyze conflicting information and viewpoints, write clearly and communicate ideas, find reliable evidence for judgments about human actions and motives, and place particular events in a broader context.
Students who join our program can pursue one of three avenues related to their own career goals. Current high school or community college instructors may wish to pursue a Graduate Certificate in History.
Students who are interested in applying their graduate degree toward fields in public history, law, museums, or public service may wish to pursue an M.S. in History.
