The Global History Graduate Certificate provides CU Denver graduate students and the wider community the opportunity to explore topics in Global History while simultaneously learning professional skills in historical research and historical dissemination. This Certificate is designed for students interested in pursuing a graduate-level education in Global History and for professionals seeking accreditation and/or promotion in the fields of education, museums, historic preservation, government, law, and the arts.
The certificate can stand on its own or it can serve as a stepping stone to a Master's Degree in History.
Upon successful completion of the certificate, students will:
- Be able to pursue independent historical research projects
- Be able to analyze debates among historians
- Be able to analyze historical documents and develop arguments from them
- This program has one on-campus requirement and the remainder of the certificate can be completed on campus or online.
Declaring This Certificate
