Graduate Studies
The Master of Arts degree in History is designed to meet the varied needs of students. There are two study tracks or plans for completion of the degree: thesis, non-thesis.
Normally, those who wish to enter a Ph.D. program, law school, or certain positions in archives, government, and community college teaching positions pursue the thesis option. Other students pursuing positions where a thesis is not needed often study in the non-thesis track.
For further information on the M.A. program, see the departmental booklet Graduate Program in History or refer to the USA Bulletin. Please also contact the Coordinator of Graduate Studies, Martha Jane Brazy.
