THE MASTER OF ARTS DEGREE
The normal requirement for admission to the M.A. program is an honours degree in History, with at least a 75% major average in undergraduate History courses. Students with an honours degree in fields other than History will be considered on the basis of their academic background and standing, and may be required to complete extra undergraduate courses as part of their program. Students with a three-year degree will be required to complete a full year (ten courses) of undergraduate courses (I Masters Qualifying -- see section titled Application Procedures – Admission Levels).
MA in History
Students must successfully complete six courses and a Major Paper. Students must take two required courses: HIST-8030 and HIST-8040 as well as four more History graduate courses. A student may, with the consent of the Graduate Advisor or AAU Head, take one course in another University of Windsor graduate program or in History at Wayne State University. Students usually complete the coursework in their first two semesters. The Major Paper will normally be written under the supervision of two History faculty members.
Although it is possible for students to complete the master’s program in one calendar year (three terms in residence), many students complete in 4-5 semesters.
