BA in History

Why Mason?

Located minutes from Washington, D.C., Mason offers you more affordable access to learning and career opportunities than any other university in the region.

This is an especially rewarding place to study history because of the rich resources in the area that students can draw upon for internships and research. Students have interned at places like the Smithsonian Institution, the Library of Congress, and Capitol Hill. 

Faculty members frequently incorporate a visit to a national museum or a colonial or Civil War site as part of the classroom experience.
