Requirements for the MA program in War & Society

In the MA program in History at Wright State, there are two possible “tracks” (besides Public History). The first is a traditional MA with thesis, primarily intended for those who are considering further study at the doctoral level. The second is a “course-intensive” track, meant to serve as a terminal degree. The latter is especially suitable for history educators who want or need the master’s degree for professional reasons. Both of these tracks are also available in the War & Society program.

Prospective students should note that, in the History Department, 7000-level courses are seminars, and 6000-level courses are (ordinarily) lecture-based.
