Become part of a dynamic intellectual community
The mission of the Masters program in History is to train post-baccalaureate students in the methods, practices, and sensibility of professional historians. A combination of methods and theories courses, advanced content courses, and supervised research prepares them to ask pertinent historical questions and develop persuasive historical arguments grounded in primary evidence and secondary literature.
The Master's program in History at Miami University prepares students to become professional historians in a wide range of fields. It is deliberately selective and flexible. Our aim is to meet the demands of, on the one hand, students looking for "traditional" academic training and, on the other, those seeking to enter directly into the job market after graduation or into programs in other disciplines (e.g., Library Science, Museum Studies).
