Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I’m writing to take advantage once again of SHEAR’s generosity in allowing me to bring the Rutgers-Camden M.A. program in history to your attention.  Our M.A. has an excellent record of training promising B.A.s who require additional seasoning and training to be competitive for Ph.D. applications and careers in public history.  All students admitted to the Rutgers-Camden M.A. program receive funding including some packages that cover full tuition and provide a stipend.  History Ph.D. programs that have accepted our M.A. students with full funding include: Brandeis, Carnegie Mellon, Ohio State, UNC Chapel Hill, U.C. Santa Barbara, University of Texas at Austin, University of Virginia, and William and Mary.  In addition, our program in Public History regularly places students in jobs in the rich public history community of Philadelphia and its vicinity.

Please encourage any interested students to email me directly at

All best,
