The Joint M.A. Degree in Public History and Public Administration

The Department of History and the Department of Government offer a joint degree in which students who are accepted into both of these programs may simultaneously earn both a Master of Arts in History degree with the Public History specialization, and a Master of Public Administration degree. The joint degree requires 57 total credits, while students who pursued both degrees as separate degrees would need to pass at least 72 credits. Students earning the joint degrees must pass a joint oral examination after passing required courses and completing internship credits in both programs. Students interested in the joint degree program should consult with the Director of the Public History Program and the Director of the Master of Public Administration Program.
