The History Masters Program at Trent University offers flexibility and allows students to shape graduate work according to their interests, objectives, and time frame. Full time students are expected to complete all degree requirements within two years of admission (although, under special circumstances, a third year may be allowed). Full-time students normally complete the course requirements and gain approval of a thesis proposal in the first year, then finish and defend the thesis in the second year. Part-time students are expected to complete the degree within four years, and the timing of the completion of specific requirements is by individual arrangement. Both full-time and part-time students can choose from two program streams: Course Work or Thesis.
