Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degree programs listed by academic unit

Note: students earning a master’s degree in the UNT history department must follow the thesis option to qualify for admission in the department’s doctoral program or complete a project in lieu of thesis.

History major (thesis option), 33 hours

  1. A graduate major in history consists of 27 hours of graduate work in history (including the required historical bibliography class and at least two research seminars) and a 6-hour thesis. The 27 classroom hours may be selected from any courses offered by the department as long as they include the two seminar and historical bibliography requirements above; the 6-hour thesis may be written on any topic approved by the student’s advisory committee.
  2. If a student wishes to have an outside (e.g., minor) field, the student may substitute 6 hours in a related field approved by the student’s major professor and the department chair for 6 hours of graduate course work in history.
  3. A candidate for this degree must successfully complete an oral examination on the course work and the thesis.

History major (non-thesis option), 33 hours

Students choosing this option will not be eligible for admission to the history PhD program at UNT, as we require a completed MA/MS degree with thesis.

  1. A student selecting this option must take any two research seminars in history and the required historical bibliography class. The remaining 24 hours may be all in history or may include a minor up to 6 hours in a related field approved by the department chair.
  2. A candidate for this degree must successfully complete an oral examination on the course work.
  3. A History MS does not require a student to demonstrate reading knowledge of a foreign language.
