Students in the American and World tracks pick from a variety of minor fields with
coursework in and outside history, including education, film studies, women's studies,
or study abroad. Students may also acquire hands-on experience through internships
and teaching practicums.
Our program is designed to offer maximum flexibility. You can choose to complete the
program through either full-time or part-time study, and it may be completed partially
or entirely online, as well. All of our graduate seminars are available in a synchronous
(that is, real-time) online format (and nearly all of our other courses, as well),
and we also offer at least one asynchronous online course every term.
For your capstone experience you will develop and carry out an in-depth research project
covering either one semester or a full-fledged two-semester thesis. Students whose
programs focus on Public History may elect to pursue a project oriented specifically
toward that field.
