The Ashbrook Center’s Master of Arts in American History and Government had another successful summer. Nearly 350 teachers from around the nation took courses in program, studying such topics as The American Founding, Civil War and Reconstruction, The American Presidency, among others. Beginning this fall the Master’s program is expanding to offer live online courses to provide participants the option to take some of their courses during the fall and spring semesters.
The culmination of hard work and dedication has paid off for six students who completed their coursework and earned their Master’s degree. Congratulations to the following August 2012 Master of Arts in American History and Government graduates!
