Overview

Master of Arts in History

The History Department offers three MA programs and a Qualifying Year option. MA History (non-thesis): 1. History 2. Development Studies 3. European Studies 4. Gender and Women's Studies 5. History of Medicine __MA History (thesis): 1. History 2. Development Studies 3. European Studies 4. Gender and Women's Studies __Qualifying Year MA Program Choice Important note: The two MA programs (MA (Non-thesis) and MA (Thesis)) are of equally high quality and rigour. Both are highly regarded by other universities, should you wish to apply for a PhD elsewhere after your master's or to another graduate program. Indeed, for those thinking of going on for the PhD in History, we recommend the MA (Non-thesis) because it gives greater breadth of foundation. Students accepted into the MA in History of Medicine must follow the MA (Non-thesis). Students applying to the MA (Thesis) should contact potential supervisors to determine their availability. Students applying to the MA (Non-thesis) should indicate under sub discipline their particular geographic, chronological or thematic interest. It may not be possible to accommodate specific research interests in the research paper, as these usually develop from available seminars in any given year.

Do not apply to both the thesis and the non-thesis master's programs as two separate choices; select only one. An applicant may request a change of option at a later time, once accepted into the program.

Students applying to the MA (Thesis) should contact potential supervisors to determine their availability. Students applying to the MA (Non-thesis) should indicate under sub discipline their particular geographic, chronological or thematic interest.

But students with other undergraduate history degrees (normally including serious research components) may be considered eligible. b) A minimum grade point average of 3.3 out of 4.0 (B+) in your BA degree Students with other undergraduate history degrees (normally including serious research components) may be considered eligible. Students with a degree in one of the health professions will be considered for the History of Medicine MA.
