Master of Arts in History University of North Carolina at Greensboro


Course info


Our Master of Arts in history offers excellent training in research and writing skills. Students may concentrate their studies on any area of American, European, or World history, provided they choose an appropriate faculty member to serve as a main advisor for their subject.

The requirements for the M.A. degree in History are spelled out in detail in the Graduate School Bulletin. The major outlines of the program are as follows:

Students are required to take 30 hours and are expected to pass a language proficiency examination or take an extra three hours of course work in either their major or minor.

Masters students create their own fields of study based on their own individual areas of interest. In consultation with faculty, students will form a three member committee with faculty who will specialize in three areas or time periods of history. One of these faculty members from the History Department will serve as the student's main advisor. Some faculty members may require that students have completed at least one course with them before agreeing to serve on a committee; students should consult with prospective committee members early in their graduate career. A faculty member from another UNCG department or program who has graduate faculty status can serve on an MA committee and create a field of study, but may not serve as the main advisor.

MA faculty committees must have one "minor" field. This means, if a student selects a faculty member whose specialization is in United States history as main advisor, then at least one of the committee members must be a specialist in a non-U.S. field. If a student selects a faculty member whose specialization is in European history as main advisor, then at least one of the committee members must be a specialist in a non-European field. Similarly, if a student selects a faculty member whose specialization is outside United States or European history, at least one of the committee members must come from either U.S. or European history.

Museum Studies

UNCG’s program places a premium on making history relevant and connecting contemporary audiences to the past. Students build a broad and practical skill set that they can apply in the public history workplace museums, historic sites, public education, web-development, and beyond.
