About the Department 

The department offers two graduate level programs in history. The first is a master’s degree through a joint program with the School of Education.  This degree prepares students for New York State certification, which will enable them to teach social studies at the adolescent level (grades 7 – 12). The second leads to an MA in History with a concentration selected by the student in consultation with the faculty.  This degree serves as either a terminal degree or as preparation for historical study on the doctoral level, which students can undertake at other institutions.
