Historical/Biographical Note

The Archives Program was founded in 1977 as a training program for archivists, historical editors, administrators, and manuscript curators. Administratively, the program is part of the History Department in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences; most of the faculty that teach in the Program reside in this Department. The program culminates in a New York State Board of Regents Certificate in Archives, Historical Society Administration, and Historical Editing. Students may also choose to pursue jointly an M.A. or Ph.D. in History or a related field.
