Program Information

School:University of Windsor - Faculty of Graduate Studies
Faculty:Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences
Degree:Master
Field of Study:History, General
Description:In our small Master of Arts (M.A.) program in history, faculty members who are active scholars and devoted teachers offer students individual attention and close supervision. In our colloquia and seminars, students engage with historical theory and practice, research, and methodology, by reading and critiquing the work of contemporary historians. The development and refinement of writing skills are a priority, honed first in course papers and later in the major research paper. The graduate program prepares students equally for continuing with the academic study of history at the doctoral level and for a variety of careers where the knowledge and skills of an historian are valued.

The M.A. program in history combines the craft of historical research, writing and analysis with an orientation to contemporary modes of historical interpretation. Most courses are organized around theme areas such as cultural and social history, or gender and sexuality - permitting students to orient their own research to sources from Canada, Europe including Britain, the United States, or Latin America.
