The History department at Colorado State University has extended our application deadline for our M.A. program to March 1. We offer our Master’s students a G.T.A.-ship, which includes tuition AND a modest stipend, so unless you’re accustomed to living high on the hog, you can earn a Master’s degree in public history (with concentrations in historic preservation, museum studies, cultural resource management), environmental history, and U.S. Western History without paying a dime or taking out any loans. Here’s a nice brochure that spells it all out.
Because the Public Lands History Center is such a hive of grant-funded research and scholarship, you can probably have a PAID internship in the summers as well! Plus, you’d get to live in Colorado for few years, which ain’t all bad either. (And I hear tell that Colorado needs all kinds of teachers these days, too.)
Check us out. If you have questions, please contact our Grad Studies Chair Dr. Adrian Howkins, whose new book, The Polar Regions: An Environmental History was published at the end of 2015. I am also happy to answer any questions you might have too.
(Just in case, here’s some free advice for applying to our grad program, all based on my real-life experiences as Grad Studies Chair once upon a time!)
