The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's master of arts in History graduate program is intended for those who wish to increase their backgrounds in history and for those who intend to do further advanced work in history. 


The History program at University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire is designed so graduate students can prepare themselves in an area of expertise that best meets their interests and needs.

Through the study of current trends in history, you'll examine the emergence of history as a profession, major subfields in the discipline, methodologies and models currently influencing the work of historians, and dominant issues historians are looking at today. The program is rooted in small reading and discussion seminars, allowing you to learn from experts in the field as well as students who, like you, are interested and passionate about the world of history.
