Lincoln University of Missouri Reactivates History Degree Programs

Last summer, Lincoln University in Missouri decided to eliminate an associate’s degree program in early childhood education and bachelor’s degree programs in music education and sacred music. At that time the university’s board of trustees decided to suspend bachelor’s degree programs in history for three years. This meant that students could not decide to major in the discipline.

But now, less than a year later, the university is reinstating history degree programs with a new focus beginning with the fall semester. Concentrations will be available in public history, research and writing, and middle/high school history education.

The research and writing concentration is meant for students who plan graduate study in history. Students in the public history track will be prepared for careers in historical preservation, archival management, and museum curatorship.
