Degree requirements are set in part by the Graduate School and in part by the History Department. The MA student must satisfy the degree requirements that are in force at the time the MA is awarded. MA students should read all relevant information on the History Department's website and the Graduate School's website. These requirements are subject to change at any time. It is the student's responsibility to be aware of the requirements in effect at the time of the degree.
The Graduate School's policies, procedures and requirements for the Masters degree including credits, grades, time-to-degree, MA Committees and examinations, instructions for applying for the M.A., etc. can be found at the UW Graduate School's page for Master's Degree Policies.
