Graduate Courses

Normal registration the first year is eight graded courses:

  1. A two-quarter seminar
  2. A historiography course
  3. Five other courses

These courses are taken for letter grades and must be completed by the end of the spring quarter. Students receive the master's degree upon completing the first-year curriculum.

Students who are recommended for the PhD continue their formal study and will be expected to complete a second year of graded course work, including another graded seminar, unless they petition for credit for previous graduate work.
