In our program, you’ll receive a thorough grounding in historical methods, sources, and modes of writing. You’ll take 11 courses before you graduate: three required history and methodology courses, three public history electives, three humanities or history electives, one fieldwork course, and one history research seminar. We like to stay fresh, so our elective courses change frequently and often correspond with public history projects our faculty are working on. Students also have the opportunity to earn a certificate in Digital Humanities, and can work with professors in media, journalism, design, and English as they do so.
We offer courses in the late afternoons and evening to accommodate internships and work schedules, and we work closely with students in the program to develop schedules and materials that correspond to their interests and needs.
