A Tri-University MA offers you the prospect to participate in an exciting History program built on the strength of three of Ontario’s finest universities:
MA in History graduates pursue careers in such professions as business, law, politics, journalism, government service, teaching, museums and archives.
Some MA students choose a graduate program in history because they enjoy history. They realize that it can enhance their understanding of themselves and the world in which they live.
Others find the MA in History provides an opportunity to test their ability in a graduate program and to discover if they have interest in pursuing a PhD degree. Through a Teaching Assistantship they experience teaching university-level courses.
You may complete the MA program at the Tri-University Graduate Program in several ways: by coursework, by a combination of coursework and a major research paper, or by coursework and an MA thesis. We also offer full-time and part-time programs. You can take courses at all three campuses, though you will choose your major research paper or thesis advisor from the faculty at your home university. The MA program is designed to be completed in two or three terms of full-time study.
