Ashland offers two Master of Arts programs in American History and Government: the Master of Arts in American History and Government and the Master of Arts with a specialization in Teaching American History and Government.
Each program is rooted in the deep study of the history of the United States and the development of a republican system of government based on principles of liberty. Either program is appropriate for current and prospective secondary school social studies teachers.
A content-based master's degree program for social studies teachers, community college faculty, museum and library personnel, professional development coordinators, and others with a personal or professional interest in history and government.
Designed for secondary school personnel assigned to teach college-level coursework such as dual-credit classes, the MASTAHG program blends graduate-level coursework in the best practices of curriculum and instruction with advanced content study in American history and government.
