MA in History at CCSU

The MA in History at CCSU provides students a solid, engaging, and rigorous experience in professional history.  Some of our students go on to doctoral programs, some go into the law, others are teachers seeking an engaging field of study to expand their knowledge and meet state continuing education requirements.  Whatever our students’ goals, they are admirably achieved with the help of CCSU faculty.
