Advanced Certificate Program

Our new Advanced Certificate Program in History—the only one in the State University of New York campus system—offers rigorous and substantial graduate training for students whose intellectual and/or career paths would be enhanced by historical expertise, but who do not intend to devote their careers to the field. It can be completed as a free-standing program, or in conjunction with a graduate or professional degree. It is thus useful for at least two types of people: graduate students in other departments whose research projects and career prospects would be enhanced by a subfield expertise in history; and professionals who have already completed their educations but who would benefit from scholarly historical training (e.g., teachers, arts-and-culture sector public historians, historic preservationists, private-sector librarians and/or archivists, etc.).
