Graduate Study in History at Clemson

The M.A. program offers broad geographical coverage in the United States, Europe, and the World, with a particular focus on the U.S. South, British Empire, memory, gender, popular culture, public history, and digital history. Students in the program expand their understanding of history itself, while also becoming focused on a specific topic in history to which they devote serious study in their M.A. thesis. The Ph.D. in Digital History is a dynamic new program that integrates computing technology and humanities scholarship for the creation and dissemination of knowledge in digital mediums. The tools of digital history include employing software for big data analyses, data- and text-mining, data visualization, and geographic information systems (GIS). Students in this program will master the field of digital history along with a temporal/geographic field and Thematic focus field.
