The Master of Arts in History degree extends students' expertise in the discipline by effectively preparing them to apply their skills in a variety of professions and contexts. Students deepen their knowledge of the process of "making" history, through analyzing primary and secondary sources, evaluating historiography, applying research methods, defining and researching a specific area of history, and effectively defending and articulating theses. Students have the option of exploring history through traditional coursework, focused on research and writing, or by investigating subjects pertinent to public history, such as understanding the latest technology for preserving and digitizing history. Emphasis is also placed on strategies to keep the student on the cutting-edge of the field, such as using quantitative reasoning in historical analysis and information systems to promote the dissemination of meaningful interpretation of the past.
