The decision to seek an advanced degree in the History Program reflects an interest in and an appreciation for the historical past. The History Program's purpose is threefold: to prepare individuals well qualified to teach the subject of history; to provide students with research and investigative skills applicable to academic and professional situations; and to encourage the thoughtful and continuing study of history throughout the lifetime of the individual. The History Program is committed to excellence in the education of teachers and to completeness in the preparation of students for the many History-related career opportunities beyond teaching now open. The History Program further believes in the relevance of other disciplines to History and encourages work in those areas relating to the student's historical interests.
Graduate assistantships are available on a competitive basis to students with outstanding records of performance. For first consideration, please apply by March 1.
