The aim of studies toward the M.A. degree is to impart in-depth historical knowledge as well as the tools for engaging in historical research. To this end, students specialize in one period (ancient or medieval period, modern history or post-modernism) or in one specific theme that is not limited to a certain period and participate in integrated studies common to all periods.
- Holders of a B.A. in the dual-major track or single-major track in general history whose grade average is at least 80 may continue their studies toward a graduate degree in either track A or the personal track.
- Students whose final grade in the Dept. of General History is at least 76 may be admitted into track B and the teachers tracks.
- Supplementary studies-graduates of other departments whose final weighted average of all courses is at least 76 may be accepted for supplementary studies toward the M.A. in General History upon the decision of the departmental M.A. committee.
Structure of Studies
Studies are conducted on one of three tracks:
Track A-with a thesis.
Track B-without a thesis, but with a final examination.
Personal track-with a thesis.
Duration of Studies
Track A-three years.
Track B-two years.
In special cases, an extension may be requested of the Dean of the Graduate School for an additional year.
