Accelerated Master's Program in History

Once accepted, students can take HST 701 Historiography which will count toward both degrees and will meet the HST 390 Historiography requirement for a history major. This option gives eligible undergraduate students the opportunity to complete their bachelor's and master's degrees in five years (ten semester and a summer).
