While maintaining a strength in the American West and the U.S.-Mexico Border, the M.A. in History from Northern Arizona University encourages students to approach the study of history from a global and comparative context. There are four options: research thesis; research project with public history; extended coursework; and extended coursework with public history.
Each student will select a primary and a secondary field for in-depth examination and analysis from the following concentrations: Colonialism & Nationalism; Environment & Health; Gender & Sexuality; Global & Comparative History; Race, Class & Ethnicity; Indigenous Peoples & Native Americans; Asia; Europe; Latin America; United States; North American Borderlands & the West.
In addition, students may select Public History as their secondary field, which refers to the application of history to real-world issues, typically making a historical topic accessible to a non-academic public. This track prepares students for professional positions in archives, museums, humanities councils, and governmental agencies, etc.
Career opportunities that might be pursued:
- Museum curator
- Foundation historian
- Information specialist
- Community college instructor

- Undergraduates learn history is more than names and dates. In our graduate program, we will deepen your understanding even further. If you’ve ever wondered about the fate of the Anasazi or the history of Mexican-American relations, our History MA might just satisfy your curiosity. We will help you clarify your understanding of human behavior—past, present, and future. You will also explore the interaction of global forces and local processes.
- Learn to think critically, develop research skills, and communicate more effectively. Our regional location will give you opportunities to learn about the area in-depth: Native American and Latino history with a focus on the American West, the Southwest, and US-Mexico Borderlands are our specialties.
