Civil War Studies
The graduate certificate in Civil War Studies is designed for students interested in the antebellum period, the Civil War years and Reconstruction era, and the social, cultural, economic, and political developments in the North and South. You will explore the operational command structure and campaign planning in relation to the evolution of tactical command and control at the various levels of the war. Special emphasis in this online program is placed on the analysis and synthesis of historical interpretations as presented in the writings of prominent and influential historians.
Many university faculty members teaching our courses are published historians or military leaders who bring unique perspectives and relevant research into the classroom. You’ll also connect and interact online with other students who share your enthusiasm for history.
