    History MA Programs

    That's amazing! I'll definitely look into that program. Substantial MA funding seems so scarce 😅

    Do you know if there is any funding offered to MA students? Their website didn't say

    Yeah I am concerned about the costs of the program/relocating to NYC. That is heartening to hear that many of its graduates have done well though

    I’ll probably purchase that textbook and look into summer Latin intensives. I’m thinking I probably need to hone into my early modern interests. I’ll look into how I can apply my current interests to other areas. I’ve focused on Europe for so I need to expand my research interests for sure.

    For sure crossing Colombia off my list. Hopefully, I can still get into a Latin class the next two semesters so I have at least a baseline understanding. My interests span from medieval to the beginning of the early modern era. Maybe I can look into what research interests of mine aren't as language heavy.

    I'm a rising senior and I'm currently trying to enroll in Latin the next two semesters. I'm definitely prioritizing languages before applying but you're right that I probably won't have enough time in my current plan. I've thought about taking a gap year but I'm considering how I could best spend it. I'll definitely look into Oxford and Cambridge. UCLA, Harvard, and Yale no longer have the terminal MA programs. However, I will look into their divinity schools which do offer terminal MAs even though they would be major reach schools for me. Thank you SO much for your help!

    Thank you both. I'll definitely look into those programs and Dr. Butler! I have the same concern about Colombia especially since the cost of living would be insane.

    Medieval Studies ??

    I'm fairly new to grad cafe so sorry if I'm doing this wrong but I need some advice. I'm an aspiring history professor but I only have one language under my belt (French) and know that I definitely need to pick up Latin before applying to Ph.D. programs. I also have an average undergraduate background and would like to improve my chances of getting into a top 30 history Ph.D. program. That being said, I realize that some of the programs I'm applying to will be a reach. I'm looking into getting my MA in either history or medieval studies. I'll detail some of my academic background below Some of my research interests: Medieval and early modern Europe, Women/gender/sexuality (this is the most prominent), Historical theology/church history, historical perceptions of witchcraft and magic, history of literature and culture (specifically Arthurian studies, folklore, and fairytales), female monarchs GPA: 3.58 (with a strong upward trend and a 3.85 history GPA). Other: haven't taken the GRE yet, currently completing an undergraduate honors thesis relevant to what I want to study in graduate school, participated in a study abroad research program which excavated medieval ruins in Italy TLDR: I'm looking into history and medieval studies MA programs and would like feedback if anyone has knowledge about the reputation of these programs or can recommend others. History MAs: -Baylor University -University of Missouri (although the POI I'm looking into doesn't seem to be taking students at the moment) -University of New Mexico -Syracuse -Clemson -Colorado at Boulder -UNC Charlotte -Tufts -Claremont -U Chicago MAPSS (I've heard so many mixed reviews on this program) -St. Andrews (also looking into other UK programs but I'm not sure I can afford it) Medieval Studies: -U Conn -Fordham -Colombia -SMU -St. Andrews
