Fields of Specialization
The field specializations used here were taken from the 2004–05 Directory of History Departments, Historical Organizations, and Historians. The departments reported more than 126 specializations comprised of 352 specific fields. To make a usable list, AHA staff reduced the list to a 12 of the largest geographic, temporal, and topical categories, along with a dropdown list of the different variations. These are intended only as a starting point for exploration.
