Welcome Current Master's Students!
Theoretically all the paperwork for your degree is right here! You'll find both EH department-related information, as well as info from The Graduate School. It won't make much sense without context, so we suggest you talk to the staff, talk to your cohort and read the Handbook first.

General Academic Information and Requirements
Second year funding is not guaranteed without at least the Chair and one member of the supervisory committee appointed by the end of semester two. The entire three-person committee must be set and appointed by the beginning of semester three. Students select at least two members from our approved core faculty, and may include one outside member. While supervisory committees are formally approved by the Dean of the Graduate School, each student is responsible for the selection of the committee.
All students are required to complete a prospectus by the middle of semester three. The goal of the prospectus is to provide an clear overview of the final thesis/project.
The program requires a minimum of 33 semester hours, of which a minimum of 27 hours is represented by coursework and six hours of thesis credit. A maximum of six credit hours may be transferred from another institution. Neither coursework taken to reach proficiency in a language for the MA requirements, nor coursework related to Writing pedagogy may be counted toward final Program degree credit.
