Students in the M.A. in History program may choose either the 3-term (1 year) cognate option or the 6- term (2-year) thesis option. This decision must be made by the middle of November following September admission. The M.A. cognate essay is a research paper of approximately 12,500 words (about 50 pages). The M.A. thesis is a longer work of original scholarship of approximately 25,000 words (or 100 pages), accompanied by a thesis defence.
Students in both streams take six one-term graduate courses during their first two terms of study. Whichever option is chosen, students need to be aware that the M.A. degree is a year-round program. Until all degree requirements are completed, they remain full-time students during the Summer and any subsequent terms. Both streams lead to the same degree.
