  Camden Graduate Catalog 2021-2023 Graduate School-Camden History 512 Program  


The graduate program in history offers the master of arts degree with concentrations in American, American legal, or public history. The concentration in American history is designed for students who desire increased competence in historical studies preparatory or supplementary to teaching in that field on the high school or community college level, who seek qualification for admission to a doctoral program at another institution, and who wish to pursue a liberal education at an advanced level. The American legal history track involves taking several advanced historical courses in the Rutgers School of Law in Camden, substituting for electives in the regular American history program.

The concentration in public history is designed to be rigorously intellectual and thoughtfully practical, blending the customary curriculum for preparing scholars and teachers with courses on applied history. The specialized public history track is for students who plan to work as historians outside the academic setting as employees of historical societies and commissions, archives, documentary filmmaking companies, museums, governmental offices, or private firms.
