Officials at Norwich University’s School of Graduate and Continuing Studies (SGCS) announced the launch of the Master of Arts in History (MAH) online program with a concentration in American History to begin in December 2011.

The MAH focuses on increasing the student’s expertise in researching, analyzing, interpreting and synthesizing historical knowledge. Students use these concepts to analyze and debate major historical events and themes. The challenge posed to students is to find and use evidence to support new interpretations of significant events in the nation’s history.

The teaching faculty is comprised of PhD level subject matter experts and published historians in the field of American history.

The 36 credit hour program can be completed in as few as 18 months.

“Norwich University has a long and deep history of contributions to our nation, both in the military and civilian worlds,” said William Clements, dean and vice president of SGCS. “I am pleased that our new program will allow students to study American history in depth and more fully examine our national heritage, as well as afford the opportunity to appreciate how Norwich has evolved as part of that history.”
