Degrees Offered:

Master of Arts in American History and Government (MAHG)

Format: Hybrid

Program Description:

Designed with teachers in mind, Ashland’s Master of Arts in American History and Government is a unique graduate program that combines intensive summer study with live, interactive online course. Unlike traditional programs for social studies teachers, coursework is in the substance of history and government, rather than in teaching methodology. And, each course is built around the study of original historical documents. Courses are offered in two convenient formats: as weeklong summer courses during June and July and as live, interactive webinar courses throughout the academic year. Each summer course at our Ashland, Ohio campus is an accelerated weeklong seminar that begins on a Sunday and ends on a Friday. Room and board are available, as is a complimentary airport shuttle service. Unlike traditional online coursework composed of recorded lectures and static websites, our live online courses are interactive webinars. Meeting at a regularly scheduled day and time, all participants are connected by video and audio in a real-time conversation. Like a traditional classroom, our live online courses are live discussions in which students and professor exchange ideas and conduct a dialogue. Students may pursue the MAHG degree, or take individual courses for continuing education credit. The courses and the degree program are open to any qualified student, including community college faculty, non-teachers, and those seeking credit for transfer to another university.


Ashland University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools .
