MA in History

The MA in history gives you the opportunity to explore a wide range of historical fields and methodologies. Our students are encouraged to develop concentrations in historical areas of interest.

Many of our graduate students focus on some aspect of United States history. Our location on the North Shore of Massachusetts provides abundant primary source material. Because of Salem's role in Puritan colonization, the Witchcraft Trials of 1691-1692, and early industrialization, you will have access to an abundance of sources to support research in every period of the American past.
