The purpose of the Master of Arts program in history is to provide broad but intensive training for students who intend to pursue careers as professional historians, whether in teaching, research, or archival or historical preservation fields, or for those who desire strong historical backgrounds for other vocational or a vocational objectives. The program offers opportunities for specialized study and research, but without neglecting the breadth that characterizes historical work at its best. In recognition of the fact that students' interests and goals are varied, the program provides a choice of three plans, all of which lead to a Master of Arts degree. This program is approved by the Ohio Board of Regents.
