JOHNSON CITY – Intelligent.com recently ranked East Tennessee State University’s Online
Archival Studies Program, part of the university’s Master of Arts in Liberal Studies
degree, 15th in the nation’s “Top 43 Master’s in Liberal Arts Degree Programs” for
“Best Archival Studies Focus.”
The ETSU Division of Cross-Disciplinary Studies offers two graduate options for students
seeking to pursue archival education: a Master of Arts in Liberal Studies (MALS) degree
with an archival studies concentration, and a standalone graduate certificate in archival
studies. Students who earn the graduate certificate may apply their credits later
to the MALS degree.
Students may also concurrently pursue the certificate as a complement to other ETSU
graduate degrees. Both archival studies options offer flexibility of scheduling and
may be completed entirely online.
ETSU’s Archival Studies curriculum aligns with the Society of American Archivists
guidelines for graduate education in archival studies.
“Our graduates have gained employment in a variety of archival settings, including
university and government archives, community and city archives, as well as heritage
sites and museums,” said Dr. Julie Fox-Horton, certificate coordinator and assistant
professor. “We are grateful for the recognition, and proud of our faculty and students
for the hard work they put into making our program stand out for such acknowledgement.”
