A student planning to leave Texas Christian University after the History master’s must complete a thesis project. A master’s candidate may write a thesis in one of the following areas:
- Early modern Europe
- Modern Europe (with an emphasis in France or Britain)
- Latin America
- United States
- Women’s history
- As a final requirement of the MA program, the student defends their MA thesis in an oral examination conducted by their MA committee. This exam tests the student’s ability to defend the contents and conclusions of their thesis.
The MA degree must be completed within five years from initial matriculation. Students pursuing a terminal MA degree are limited to two years of financial aid from the Department of History.
A master’s student continuing into the TCU Ph.D. program may elect to forego a thesis. Instead, the student will have a defense of two completed article-length research papers with their advisor and one other faculty member. These students may also elect to write a master’s thesis, and many of them do so.
