  • The M.A. in History MA trains graduate students in the process of writing primary-source-based research papers, which make well-evidenced arguments, grounded in historiography and theory  
  • The MA History program offers a high quality educational experience since only graduate students may enroll in MA History seminars, all of which are taught by tenured or tenure-track faculty with appointments to the University of Colorado Graduate Faculty
  • Our MAs apply their skills in many ways: presenting their work at professional conferences, teaching at universities, community colleges, and K-12 schools, and engaging in professional work (internships) at museums, archives, and other organizations regionally and nationally.
