Joint Degree Program in History (MA) and the School of Library & Information Science (MLIS)
The department, in conjunction with the School of Library & Information Science, also offers a joint degree program in which a student can earn a Master of Arts degree in history and a Master of Library Science & Information degree simultaneously with the completion of 60 hours.
