History matters. Leverage the past to build your future.

For nearly two centuries, Norwich University has played a vital role in history as America's first private military college, the nation’s first private college to offer civil engineering instruction, and the birthplace of ROTC. We are also the proud alma mater of more than 18,000 alumni - many of whom have made significant contributions to our country’s development, including Edwin Ferry Johnson, chief engineer of the Northern Pacific Railroad; Harry Bates Thayer, president and chairman of AT&T in the 1920s; and General Gordon R. Sullivan, chief of staff of the U.S. Army in the 1990s.

That’s why our Master of Arts in History program is uniquely positioned to lead students through a comprehensive analysis of the major developments, events, and figures of the past.
