Winnipeg , Manitoba ,Canada


The Master of Arts in History (called Joint Master’s Program or JMP) is offered jointly by the History Departments of The University of Winnipeg and the University of Manitoba. The program prepares students to undertake independent research and place their findings within their historical context, and ensures that they acquire a comprehensive knowledge of at least two areas of historical study. Students in the program choose one of four streams: a major research paper MA. a course MA, a thesis MA, or an Archival Studies stream. Specialized work is offered in many areas of historical study: the Americas, Asia and Africa; Britain and the Commonwealth; Canada; Medieval and Early Modern Europe; Modern Europe; History of Science; Modern World; Archival Studies. Courses and thesis direction are offered at both universities. Students in the program with no previous training in Historiography and/or Historical Methods will need to take a 6 credit hour graduate course in this field. In addition, all students in the program will be required to demonstrate a reading knowledge of a second language, relevant to their research program. The Course and Major Research Paper streams are designed as 12-month programs, while the Thesis and Archival Studies streams are designed as two-year programs. All necessary requirements for the MA in History must be fulfilled within four years of the original date of entry into the JMP. Students must re-register for each year until their program is completed. Students completing the Joint MA in History will receive a joint parchment, and may choose to participate in convocation at either of the two universities.
