The Oral History Master of Arts Program at Columbia University

Oral History Master of Arts (OHMA) is an interdisciplinary Master of Arts degree program in the field of oral history, the first program of its kind.

OHMA trains students to conduct research through creating and analyzing interviews, and to develop fieldwork projects to address historical and contemporary issues that require interdisciplinary investigation. The field of oral history supports research on immigration, migration, ethnicity, gender, politics, government and human rights. Through the collection, archiving and analysis of individual, community and institutional histories, we preserve the critical first-person narratives that capture the spirit of our society for generations to come.

I want to further explain something. Columbia University is FOUR schools not two. I had a comment saying it was only CC and SEAS. This is incorrect. CU consists of CC, Barnard College, GS (General Studies) and SEAS. Barnard has its own separate admissions, however is part of the University. When you graduate from Barnard you receive the same diploma as anyone else in CU. All of these schools can take classes with each other. I am a Film Studies major, but since the film school is over at the Columbia side of campus, I take all my classes there.
