4) MA Program in History and New Media

The Department of History at California State University, San Marcos offers an innovative M.A. degree that combines traditional graduate historical instruction with training in digital history. Founded in 2008, we have placed several of our terminal M.A. graduates in tenure-track positions in community college, while others have received full fellowships for doctoral programs or launched careers in historic museums, libraries or archives. We have special strength in U.S. history, as well as in fields such as film and video game history, Middle Eastern history, ancient history and comparative history. A sample list of recent thesis topics can be found here. We are also pleased to have a dedicated Digital History Lab where students can collaborate with each other or with faculty.
