At Norwich, we understand the importance of keeping the spirit of history alive. Founded in 1819, we’re the nation’s first private military college and an institution where history isn’t a subject, it’s our legacy.

Our Master of Arts in History online program caters to history enthusiasts and professionals who value the opportunities that studying history presents. To cater to the diverse interests and facts of history, we offer four tracks: World History, American History, Public History, and Legal and Constitutional History.

We know that this passion for history is the driving force behind the journey of many of our graduates. Graduates who have gone on to pursue their PhD, research and teach, including at institutions such as University of Hawaii, Northeastern University, Grand Canyon University (AZ) and the University of South Dakota.
