Master of Arts Degree in History

The History Department offers an M.A. degree in History in two concentrations: History and Museum Studies.

The History Department has a faculty nationally recognized for its dedication to both research and teaching. Our graduate-level classes tend to be small and a feature a maximum of student-faculty interaction. This interaction is also fostered through an extensive advising and mentoring system designed to make the graduate experience not only intellectually rich but user-friendly. As Director of Graduate Study, I will be your first advisor, helping you to custom design your plan of study and get you started in the program; I will remain, through your time here, available for general questions about the curriculum. Sometime during your first year you will also select a mentor, who will advise you in those areas of history that are of greatest interest to you.

Students in the Museum Studies concentration are mentored by the Director of Public History, Dr. Benjamin Filene (bpfilene@uncg.edu). Dr. Filene is on research leave during Spring 2015 semester. Please contact Dr. Anne Parsons (aeparson@uncg.edu) with questions about the public history program during this time.
