The Master of Arts in Military History degree allows you to choose a concentration that best suits professional aspirations and interests. The core and required courses ensure that you will learn historical research methods, historiography, and historical perspectives before concentrating in American Military History or the American Revolution, the Civil War, World War II, and War since 1945. The curriculum not only focuses on strategy, command, leadership, battles, tactics, and weapons systems, but also on social structures, military attitudes, relationships between officers and the rank-and-file, and on the interrelations between military and civil society. The degree emphasizes reading, discussion, writing, and research and prepares students for advanced graduate study.
The American Public University System is regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, North Central Association; and nationally, by the Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council.
