Professional licensure and certification requirements often vary from state to state. St. John’s University has not determined requirements for individual states beyond New York. If you reside or plan to reside outside New York, you are strongly encouraged to contact the appropriate state licensing agency in that state to seek information and guidance before beginning the program.
Studying history provides you with a window into the past, but it also enhances your understanding of the present, develops your critical thinking skills, and offers you valuable insight into human behavior. The skills you cultivate are necessary for success in fields such as business, journalism, law, public policy, and teaching.
At St. John’s, the opportunity to explore the world through a historical lens is exceptional. You can pursue a wide range of degrees in history or public history, or earn both a Master of Arts degree in Public History and an American Library Association-accredited Master of Science degree in Library and Information Science—the only institution in New York City that offers this opportunity.
