The Department of History at Memorial University has a well-established program of Graduate Studies with a broad range of teaching and research interests.
- The Master of Arts (MA) program is designed to be completed in 12 months, and normally consists of four (4) semester courses and a major research paper, or, a more rigorous option, of three (3) semester courses and a thesis. Though most MA students have chosen to concentrate on Canadian or Newfoundland history, the department welcomes students interested in aspects of Maritime, United States, British and European history. Faculty also have expertise in thematic areas such as environmental, medical, labour, military, media and gender history.
- The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) program is offered in Canadian history, maritime history, and the history of Newfoundland and Labrador. Students complete two courses, a French language examination, and three reading fields before the comprehensive examination. A dissertation based on original research follows the formal presentation of a thesis proposal to the department.
