Program Description:

You relish learning about the past and have a knack for connecting the dots between the lessons of yesterday and the challenges of today.

Put that exceptional intellectual curiosity to work by enrolling in Monmouth University’s 30-credit MA in History. Whether you’re seeking a valuable career enhancement or planning to pursue your PhD, Monmouth’s MA in History gives you the power to tailor your degree to your interests and goals. Convenient evening classes let you earn your degree while you work.

In addition to our general degree, the graduate history program offers three detailed specializations. Monmouth’s World History focus is a sought-after specialization that most history departments don’t offer. Our U.S. and European History specializations offer critical context in an increasingly global economy.

In small seminars, you will work with professors with a wide array of specialties, and you will engage fellow students with a diverse set of backgrounds and interests. The development of research proficiency, humanistic values, and a broad understanding of global issues is also emphasized in this program.

U.S. History Specialization

The MA Specialization in U.S. History is designed to give students deep and sophisticated knowledge of the subject area, and to explore ways in which historians go about their craft. Those enrolled have the opportunity to customize their course work by selecting from a wide variety of courses.

European History Specialization

The MA Specialization in European History focuses on the development of European society, culture, and institutions—from its origins to the present. Students in this specialization take a look at the medieval and modern periods; they examine not only Europe's historical role, but also its continuing economic, political, and global influence throughout the European Union.

World History Specialization

The MA Specialization in World History offers opportunities to study historical connections between people of different states, regions, and cultures, as well as over vast expanses of time and space. Students in this specialization examine different themes, convergences, divergences, and interactions at multiple levels of historical inquiry.
