Program Description:

M.A. candidates are expected to specialize in at least two fields of study, and the comprehensive examination will be based on those fields. There are a minimum of specific requirements and prerequisites, permitting the student, in consultation with an advisor, to devise a program which best meets the student's needs and interests. The M.A. must be taken with a thesis. Prior to the completion of 18 graduate hours, each M.A. candidate in the Department of History, Humanities, Philosophy and Political Science must present a prospectus of his/her proposed thesis to the graduate faculty of the department. This prospectus should include the specific topic for the proposed thesis, the methodological approach, a tentative outline, and a preliminary bibliography clearly indicating the primary and secondary source materials that will be utilized. No M.A. candidate will be permitted to enroll in Hist 33-699 Thesis until the graduate faculty has approved the prospectus and a Master's Thesis Committee has been appointed.
