Graduate Degree Programs

History: Master of Arts (MA)
The Master’s Program in History can meet a variety of intellectual and professional needs: as preparation for doctoral study, as the academic requirement for permanent New York State teacher certification, and as an opportunity for students to upgrade their current job credentials and enrich their intellectual life. The department’s graduate faculty have outstanding records of publication in many areas.

Requirements for Matriculation 

These requirements are in addition to the general requirements for matriculation.​​
1. Applicants must be approved by the department’s Committee on Graduate Studies. Approval is based on the satisfactory completion of sufficient work in history or related fields to pursue graduate work in history.
2. An applicant whose undergraduate preparation is considered inadequate by the department’s committee may be admitted as a non-matriculated student. Satisfactory completion of approved courses will be required before the student can matriculate. Undergraduate courses taken to make up for inadequate preparation cannot be counted toward the MA degree. Graduate courses, provided they are approved by the graduate advisor, may be counted toward the MA degree. In some instances, students whose undergraduate preparation in history is judged inadequate may be required to take additional hours in graduate history to remove those deficiencies.

Requirements for Non-Matriculation

Students are to follow the college’s requirements for non-matriculation​.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
