An advanced degree in history means that you've studied past events from every possible angle — and that makes you ideally suited to create a better future in a variety of careers.
Our graduate program in history is an intensive introduction to the study of history in a wide variety of subject areas. You can choose areas of study that range from the ancient to modern periods in European, Latin American, African, Asian and Middle Eastern history as well as an all-encompassing examination of U.S. history, from the colonial period to today. Our highly respected and widely published professors will introduce those histories to you from every angle — social and cultural, political, diplomatic, environmental and economic. With an advanced degree in history, you will be well prepared for a career in education, law, public service or any other field that requires knowledge of the past and expertise in historical research methods.
