Western Carolina University’s Master of Arts (MA) in History (American or European) degree program offers you a faculty of active scholars and excellent teachers in the supportive atmosphere of a small program.
With four tracks within the M.A. program to choose from, our graduates have gone on to Ph.D. programs, museum work, and secondary and post-secondary teaching. The four tracks are as follows:
- Non-Thesis Option (American or European concentration)
- Thesis Option (American or European concentration)
- Cherokee Studies Option (American concentration, thesis or non-thesis)
- Public History Option (American concentration)
Our friendly and collegial graduate students also work with faculty as graduate assistants, maintain their own professional journal, present papers at conferences, and enjoy stimulating intellectual discussions both inside and outside the classroom.
