We need your input!

Now that Kennesaw State University is a comprehensive state university, the Department of History and Philosophy is proposing a Masters’ Degree in History. The degree would provide a credential for those seeking to advance their careers as well as those considering additional graduate or professional training. The proposal includes three tracks or concentrations to meet the unique needs of our students: 1. History (General); 2. History of Global Conflict and Cooperation; 3. Philosophy and Culture. Some Graduate programs require an international experience. Most require that students complete an original research project in the form of a thesis. We need your assistance as we develop our proposal. Please assist us by taking this one page survey:
