The master's program in history is a small, selective program of graduate study that emphasizes a comparative understanding of the historical process. It is organized around colloquia in comparative and regional topics, the preparation of specific fields, and individual research in consultation with a faculty member.

  • Understand printed and electronic historical research aids, exhibit knowledge of bibliographical search procedures, and have the ability to effectively develop research bibliographies.
  • Understand the broad outlines of historical interpretation and narrative in a field of specialization.
  • Display knowledge of dominant schools of historical explanation and narrative, and exhibit the ability to apply the various interpretative frameworks to the investigation of data.
  • Exhibit disciplined habits of research through experience at gathering primary and secondary historical data and effectively storing them so as to be readily retrieved.

  • Display facility at presenting historical arguments orally and describing research and findings to an audience.
  • Exhibit knowledge of a language other than English, sufficient for research into sources in that language.
