College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
The degree program is intended to prepare the student for further advanced study, as well as to give him or her a disciplinary background adequate for those professions in which a master's degree is ordinarily considered adequate, such as secondary school teaching and archival work.The purpose of all courses offered by the Department of History is to provide a critical acquaintance with the past experience of human society. Graduate courses involve wide contact with historical literature, including source materials; some practice in collecting, interpreting, and presenting data according to acceptable standards of method and style; and intensive discussion of the nature and problems of the discipline.
