jhsting32 Posted March 4, 2014 Share Posted March 4, 2014 I have applied to and have been accepted into both History MA and African American Studies MA programs. I am currently awaiting the admission decisions from two African American Studies programs, both of which have top 25 History PhD programs and one of which has a bridge program to the History PhD. From the two programs that I have been admitted to, I have received TAships. All of the African Americans Studies programs I have applied to are top programs while the History program is not necessarily a top program but it has two professors who are experts in my area of interest. I'm wondering as an applicant who did not major in History during undergrad (I went to a top public university) and who may not obtain a History MA, would I have any chance in getting into a top History PhD program (majored in African American Studies- undergrad)? P.S. the African American Studies programs have top historians in my field, African American History Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
