Degree Plan: MA in History Online

This is a model two-year degree plan. Your path to graduation will vary depending on course availability, the number of hours taken per semester, and whether you take classes in the summer. 

You may enter the program any semester. October 1 is the date of first consideration for admission for the Spring semester and March 1 is the date of first consideration for summer and fall admission. Applications will be considered after these dates if spaces remain in the program. Otherwise they will be considered at the next date of first consideration.

Your plan will also vary from the one shown here depending on the program track you select and whether you write a thesis. The following is based on the U.S. & World track, with a concentration in U.S. history. Topics covered in seminars and proseminars will vary.
