  • RE:Norwich University's Master of Arts in Military History

    any one have experience with the course?

  • #2
    Have not been involved in this course. I can tell you Norwich is a few miles from me, has an excellent reputation and is primarily a military academy (the oldest in the country). Based on what I know I have every reason to believe it would be an excellent course.

      I'm going to go for this course, thanks for the info, much appreciated.

      I love this stuff more than anything and I can't wait.

      Cheers

          Likewise. I saw the banner ads here and am interested. Sent them an e-mail info request and am awaiting whatever they send.

            What kind of cost are you looking at? I am currently working on my second degree, in English. I wanted to go into history but there were not enough courses by corespondance and only two that dealt with military history at my university.

                  Not to undercut a sponser but if you are interested in this sort of thing and are not aware of it, I suggest you all also check out the courses through American Military University. Open to civilians. Norwich is more nationally recognized. If you want the degree for academnic reasons I would go with Norwich, but if it is just general interest, AMU has some interesting options.

                      M.A. in Military History

                      Apparently so yoritomo, judging by the pop-up info that appears on their "request for course information" page, and redirects you to online-colleges that do accept non-US citizens. Sadly none of these offer Military History

                      It is probably because the Norwich course requires:
                      On-Campus Requirement:
                      End of program one week residency on campus in the summer.
                      For further info:
                      You may call an Admissions Advisor at 1-800-460-5597 ext. 3376 (US and Canada), 001-647-722-6642 ext. 3376 (International), who will be able to answer all your questions
                      See:

                      http://www.mmh.norwich.edu/index.html

                      Incidentally, I notice that the post of "Director of the Master of Arts in Military History" is currently open at Norwich, starting July 1, 2006.

                      See:

                      I will look around for other distance-learning Military History courses and see if I can come up with something else.

                        thank you, Weeble

                        what a disappointment.

                        thanks for the lookout for other course of the same reputation as Norwich hopefully. hope you can come up with something for the rest of us.

                          After a trawl around international distance-learning courses, I find that I agree with JSMoss.

                          The only other option is:

                          Sam Houston State University

                          "Master of Arts in History with an Emphasis in Military History"

                          http://www.shsu.edu/%7ehis_www/milhist.htm

                          I note that this institution is not accredited to the same level as both Norwich and APUS. (I admit I am more familiar with inspection & accreditation bodies in the UK, so I don't want to offend anyone here!)

                          Norwich seems to be rated the #1, but "American Public University System" appears to be open to all (judging by their admissions policy/student profile).

                          APUS has a BA in Military History and 13 specialised Masters in "Military Studies"
