The Department of History and Government offers a student-centered and interactive graduate program with two separate master of arts degrees in either history or government. We also offer a combined history and government master's degree, either emphasizing in history or government, that allows students to teach either subject at the high school or community college level in Texas.
A minor in either history or government is also available to master’s-level graduate students. Students in other graduate departments are welcome to take graduate courses in the department with the consent of the instructor.
We are now offering a public history degree track within our history graduate program that prepares students to effectively share historical knowledge at a historical site or in a museum setting. We will also soon offer a public affairs degree track within our government graduate program that will prepare students to make everlasting changes in public service careers.
