Admission Requirements

MA

Second class standing in the final two years of an Honours BA degree in History from a recognized university is the minimum requirement (equivalent to 76-79% or GPA 3.3) for admission. Successful applicants most often have first class standing.

MA applicants normally must have taken several upper level history courses, ideally seminar courses, and have at least an A- in these courses. If you are unsure if your academic background meets the programme requirements, please contact the History Graduate Chair. Please copy and paste your student transcripts into the email. Students without sufficient background in history will need to take history undergraduate courses before applying to the MA, although a qualifying year is sometimes an option.
