History Class with Dr. Matthew Osbourn

Degree Options

The Department of History at UMKC offers degree options at both the undergraduate and graduate level, combining the personal attention of a liberal arts college with the scholarship of a research institution.

Currently, our department offers a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in History and a minor in History, including an option for an online minor. Even more online courses will be available in the future through a course sharing arrangement with the University of Missouri-St. Louis.

Our department also has a robust graduate program. We offer a Master of Arts (M.A.) in History with either a traditional academic emphasis or an emphasis in public history. We also offer the Interdisciplinary Ph.D. in conjunction with the UMKC School of Graduate Studies. History may be studied as a Primary Discipline or a Co-Discipline.
