Hello all, I am a History major about to complete my Bachelors. The end goal of my career track is to obtain a PhD in a field related to History. That said the first step is to obtain a Masters but I am facing a massive dilemma. What specific History Masters should I jump at... and where? My original plan was to attend American Military University. The link to their History program is here: Online Master's Degree in History | American Military University The dilemma is they have several concentrations. American, Ancient, European, and Global. If I pursued a degree with a concentration on European History, would I be tight caste to find a PhD program that also focuses on European History? Or would I be able to pursue any PhD History program? What do y'all think of their standing? Have you come across more distant learning options that provide a better education? Do you believe a PhD program would be more accepting of a degree from say Norwich over one from AMU? I really appreciate you taking the time to read and provide your opinions/insights. Thanks!
