Students who successfully earn an MA in History from EWU should be able to do the following:
- Academic–This concentration prepares students for the rigor of a PhD program, or simply gives them the opportunity to do more focused research. Students obtain competency in a research skill (e.g. a foreign language, GIS, oral history)by completing a master’s thesis or a research report in lieu of thesis; and completing an oral examination during their final quarter of graduate study.
- General–This concentration is ideal for working teachers and other professionals who need a graduate degree to advance in their profession. Students are prepared via their successful completion of a written examination and an oral examination demonstrating extensive knowledge in two fields during their final quarter of graduate study.
- Public History–This concentration prepares students for careers outside the academy. Students obtain competency in a research skill (e.g. digital history, GIS, oral history) by doing an internship (HST 694) completing coursework, and preparing a portfolio of professional work and an oral examination during their final quarter of graduate study.
