Archives (Graduate Certificate)
The certificate in archives provides graduate-level training in the field but does not offer a full master’s degree in history. Those pursuing this certificate may already have entered the archives profession, but without specific credentials in the field. Others will be making a career change and will pursue the certificate as their first step toward becoming an archives professional.
To be admitted to this certificate program, prospective students will apply to the graduate program of the History Department and must meet the same standards as students admitted to the MA program. Students completing the five courses will apply to the History Department for the certificate and will be awarded the certificate upon determination that they have successfully completed the requirements.
The current director of the archives track is Professor Darwin Stapleton. For more information about this certificate program, please contact him at Darwin.Stapleton@umb.edu.
