Top Military History Graduate Programs

1. University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill

University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill (UNC) is a large, 4-year institution that was one of the first public universities in the country. UNC's history department awards both an M.A. and a Ph.D. in military history. The department is able to offer students extensive resources in military history due in part to its collaboration with the Duke University history department. Graduate students may take courses and work closely with military historians at both UNC and Duke. Additionally, through UNC, graduate students have the opportunity to participate in the Triangle Institute for Security Studies, a university consortium focused on issues of national and international security, which includes students and faculty from various related fields.
