Dr. Nora Pat Small, professor of history, currently serves as the coordinator for the graduate program in historical administration. The graduate program offers a Master of Arts in History with the historical administration option.

Dr. Small’s research interest focuses on the built environment of the Early American Republic. Specifically the intersections of architecture, technology, economics, society, and politics in that period when Americans began to self-consciously shape the landscape of their new nation. She received her doctorate from Boston University.

Admission to the graduate program in historical administration requires an application to the Graduate School as well as an additional application to the Department of History. Please contact Dr. Small or visit the program's website for program admission criteria.
