Admission and Application

An undergraduate degree in history is NOT a prerequisite for entering the M.A. program. Graduates of departments of social sciences, humanities, management, engineering, and science may apply. All students entering the graduate program in history must take one year of preparatory courses before they begin Master's level course work.

To enter the Ph.D. program candidates are required to have completed an M.A. degree in History or a related field.
