Combined History and Government Master’s Degree

We offer a combined master's degree program in both history and government. Students may choose to pursue an emphasis in either history or government, receiving a master of arts degree in the respective emphasis subject.

For the history emphasis, the program couples 21 hours of graduate study in history with 18 hours of graduate study in government. For the government emphasis, the program couples 21 hours of graduate study in government with 18 hours of graduate study in history.

Graduates of the combined program write a professional paper and receive their master's in either history or government. They will have enough graduate hours to teach both subjects in Texas community colleges or dual credit courses in both history and government in Texas high schools.
