Master of Arts in History Program Requirements with Thesis

The Master of Arts degree in History with thesis requires the completion of at least 33 hours of approved graduate-level courses including a thesis. At least half the work presented for the degree must be 600-level courses.
 
If a student has not taken HIST 300 or an equivalent historiography and methodology course, he/she must do so as soon after admission as practicable. The student will not receive graduate-level credit for this course.  In exceptional circumstances, the student may, with permission of the MA advisor and the department chairperson, demonstrate adequate research and writing skills by submitting satisfactory proof of those skills in lieu of taking HIST 300. In such case, the student must submit to the MA advisor a research paper and receive the advisor's approval that the paper demonstrates adequate research and writing skills.
  
Immediately upon entering the graduate program, the student should develop with the assigned advisor an individual course of study which meets the requirements for the degree and the student's objectives.
