Master's Degree | Russellville Campus | In-Person, Blended, or Online
The Master of Arts in History program at Arkansas Tech University is designed to provide flexible yet advanced historical study for students in academia, education, or those in pursuit of other careers in either the public or private sector. Graduate hours in History provide teachers with deeper content knowledge and can open up opportunities to instruct concurrent enrollment courses, while community college instructors with graduate education in other fields benefit from the ability to add History to their repertoire. Students who seek to continue in academia receive training equipping them for placement in Ph.D. programs. Our students enjoy flexible delivery—in-person, online, or a blend of both. Video conferencing and frequent digital contact with our graduate faculty ensure that while you may be participating from a distance, you're never on your own.
A GRE score is not required for admission. Applicants are encouraged to inquire about the availability of Graduate Assistantships.
Upon admission, students will consult with the Graduate Advisor to choose a primary area of concentration in either World History or United States History and develop a degree plan. Students complete the degree via a choice of the thesis or exam option.
For more information, contact Dr. Kelly Houston Jones, Associate Professor of History and Graduate Program Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
