Arizona's largest university is partnering with a New Orleans museum to offer the nation's first graduate degree in World War II studies.

Arizona State University and the National WWII Museum say classes for the online master's degree program will begin in January and will feature five professors from the museum and three from the university.

The classes will feature video lectures and artifacts from the museum's archives, according to a news release.

"The museum's mission has always been to educate future generations on the American experience in the war that changed the world," Gemma Birnbaum, director of the museum's media and education center, said in the news release. "By partnering with Arizona State University, we are offering students the unique opportunity to learn from leading experts who can provide the most comprehensive view of a global conflict that still shapes our society and political structures today."
