3 I. A Program of New Initiatives The graduate program in history at Arizona State University provides students with the professional skills needed for advanced research, writing, and teaching, as well as the opportunity to prepare for a career in public history. With more than 40 faculty members, the History faculty offers a diverse program of advanced study leading to master s and doctoral degrees. In addition, the History faculty supports the Teachers College Master of Education (M.Ed.) for students interested in history education at the secondary level. The History faculty as well provides graduate course work with the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences for a History concentration in the Master of Liberal Studies (M.L.S). For doctoral students interested in a career in higher education, the History faculty offers special programs that complement regular academic coursework. The Preparing Future Faculty Program (PFF-History), established with a grant from the American Historical Association, provides practical advice and training in the skills needed to be successful in the professoriate with workshops focusing on public history, grant writing, the dissertation prospectus and the job market. In addition, the History faculty participates in the Graduate College s Preparing Future Faculty Program, offering an optional opportunity for some students in this broader-based interdisciplinary initiative, which brings together doctoral students from a variety of programs across the university. The History faculty s Teaching Assistant Training Program provides formal preparation for college teaching and the opportunity to independently teach courses after passing the qualifying examination. The programs in Public History and Scholarly Publishing provide a set of courses and internships to prepare students for history-based careers outside academe. The Public History Program offers both master s and doctoral preparation. The Scholarly Publishing Program is open to students in M.A. and Ph.D. programs, as well as those with graduate degrees in hand. For more than 25 years the Public History Program has sent its graduates into challenging careers nationally and internationally. The doctoral program particularly benefits from the History faculty s selection to participate in the Carnegie Initiative on the Doctorate, a project of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. This highly competitive project initially accepted 20 history programs into its work and offered 10 of those (including the ASU History faculty) the opportunity to participate in intensive, collaborative workshops crafting revisions to their doctoral preparation. As a result of this initiative the ASU History faculty introduced a new PhD program in the fall of 2005, and further refined that program in the spring of

4 II. Degrees Offered DEGREE PROGRAMS AND THEIR REQUIREMENTS Master of Arts (M.A.) in History: The M.A. program in history offers advanced study toward the discipline s first professional degree. The program provides students the fundamental training needed for careers in secondary school teaching, in historical research, and in public history. It also prepares students for entering a Ph.D. program or for a professional degree in another discipline. Students select a primary field from one of the following areas: North America, Europe, East/Southeast Asia, Latin America, or Public History. M.A. candidates also select a research concentration in consultation with their advisor. There are three ways to earn a Master s degree: the traditional M.A. with a thesis, the thesis equivalent option for those not intending to continue on for a Ph.D., and the Master s in passing option for those who enter a Ph.D. degree program directly from their Bachelor s degree. Each degree option as well as the Public History program requirements is described in detail below. Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in History: The Ph.D. program enables the recipient to seek professional employment as a faculty member in higher education, as a researcher, as a teacher, or as a public historian. Students may enter the Ph.D. program either directly from a B.A. or more commonly with a master s degree in hand. As with the M.A. degree, students select a primary field in one of the following areas: North America, Europe, East/Southeast Asia, Latin America, or Public History. Students also select a secondary field and a research specialization. The secondary field is chosen from one of the above broad geographic regions or from a thematic field that provides global or comparative training across geographic regions. The History faculty s website describes the fields of specialization we currently offer and faculty affiliated with them. Public history students select one of the primary fields as a co-equal field in lieu of a secondary field and have additional requirements (see section V). Master of Education (M.Ed.): The ASU History faculty assists the Teachers College in its master's degree in Secondary Education with a concentration in History. Candidates for the degree take 15 hours of course work in the College of Education and 15 hours of course work in History. The program is administered through the College of Education and students interested in pursuing this degree should contact its admissions office. Master of Liberal Studies (M.L.S.): The ASU History faculty assists the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences in offering a master s degree in Liberal Studies. The Master of Liberal Studies offers students an opportunity to expand their liberal arts background. The program is intended for students seeking a graduate degree that explores the integration of the humanities with political, religious, social, and scientific questions. It connects students to the entire College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and promotes integrative learning across the disciplines. For more information, see 4

5 II. The Master of Arts Degree in History The History faculty offers a flexible menu of graduate courses in the various fields. Courses rotate annually and are listed on the History website. The MA degree requires 30 hours, with a minimum of 24 hours in History (courses with the HST prefix). With the approval of the student s supervisory committee, students may include up to six credit-hours of course work from other units (courses without the HST prefix). For those seeking a Masters in Public History, additional coursework is required. (Public History requirements are described in sections V and XIII.) To complete the requirements for the degree, students write either a master's thesis or its equivalent as the culminating experience. Full-time students normally can complete all the requirements for the Master of Arts degree within two calendar years. Plan of Study POS (must be filed by April 1 of the first year) Minimum credit-hour requirements: A minimum of thirty (30) semester hours of graduate course work is required for an M.A. in History. Public History students pursue a double concentration and should refer to section V for the minimum hours needed. Major Advisor: At the beginning of the first semester of study, the student, in consultation with the graduate director, selects a faculty advisor who will help direct the student to the completion of the required course work. Normally, an advisor is selected, at least tentatively, prior to enrollment or within the first six weeks of the fall semester. Together the student and advisor develop the plan of study and the thesis topic and research plan. Supervisory Committee: Each M.A. student must also form a supervisory committee of at least three faculty members. The student s faculty advisor helps the student select the other two members of the committee and chairs that committee. The second and third committee members must be selected by the time the Plan of Study is submitted during the second semester of coursework. A student may change committee members, including the advisor, with the approval of both the Director of Graduate Studies and the new committee member(s) or advisor. Primary Field: Master s students select a primary field from among the following: North America, Europe, East/Southeast Asia, Latin America, or Public History. Note: Public History students pursue a double concentration, e.g., Public History and North American history, or Public History and European history, etc. Master s Program Course Requirements: The History faculty approves only 500-level course work and above on the Plan of Study. If a student wants to take a 400-level course for graduate credit, he or she should attend the class but enroll in HST 590 (readings and conferences) doing all the work required of the undergraduates, plus additional graduate level work arranged in a written agreement with the faculty member teaching the course. 5

6 Additional requirements for the M.A. include: Research Seminar HST 591: At least 3 credit-hours on the Plan of Study must be HST 591, normally taken in the student s primary field. For students completing one of the non-thesis options (see below), six credits of 591 are required. Thesis/thesis equivalent: Six credit-hours of HST 599 (thesis) is required of students writing a thesis. Students selecting the thesis equivalent or applied project option will take six credit-hours of HST 592 (research) or six credit-hours of HST 593 (applied project) in lieu of HST 599 in the 30 hours of the Plan of Study. Minimum GPA required: Students must maintain a minimum 3.3 cumulative GPA for courses included on the Plan of Study. No courses graded below a C may be included on the Plan of Study. See section VIII for additional information regarding academic performance and satisfactory progress toward the degree. Advanced Research Skill: The History faculty requires candidates to demonstrate an advanced research skill important to their research work in the discipline. Demonstration of advanced skill in a foreign language will be expected from some supervisory committees, particularly those in the East Asian, European, and Latin American fields. Some committees may require more than one foreign language or more than one non-linguistic advanced research skill. Foreign language skills may be demonstrated in advanced courses, by degrees already completed, undergraduate course work, examinations, etc. The supervisory committee is responsible for determining the appropriate benchmarks of proficiency. While the supervisory committee determines the foreign language competency needed, other advanced research skills require a proposal to state how proficiency in the skill will be developed and demonstrated. Research skills may include such things as quantitative methods of analysis, oral history training, GIS mapping, documentary editing, training in archival management, and historic preservation; or may involve interdisciplinary training in fields relevant to the student s research interests, such as geography, anthropology, sociology, political science or public administration, literature, ethnic studies, women s studies, ecology, etc. These interdisciplinary skills may be developed and demonstrated through appropriate course work in that discipline and/or professional experience. Advanced Research Skill Proposal and Demonstration of Competency: By the end of the first year of study, the student must, in consultation with his or her committee chair, decide on an advanced research skill. Advanced research skills may be demonstrated in the following ways: Passing a foreign language exam administered by SILC or by a competent examiner. 6

7 Completing all the requirements for a graduate certificate. Completing an advanced research skill that has been approved by the student s supervisory committee and the Director of Graduate Studies. In order to receive approval, the student must submit a proposal that includes detailed information concerning how the skill will be acquired and how competency will be demonstrated. The minimum requirements for acquiring competency in an advanced research skill are successful completion of two classes focusing on the skill in question. In one of these courses, the student should complete a project that demonstrates competency in the skill. Competency in the advanced research skill will be indicated on the Plan of Study by the course designation HST 692. All doctoral students must enroll in one credit of 692 during the semester when they intend to demonstrate their competence in the research skill. A student s major advisor or a designee approved by the advisor will serve as the instructor of record for the 692. The student must receive a passing grade in this course before s/he will be allowed to take the oral qualifying exam in the research field. The Master s Thesis Thesis program: The primary culminating experience of the master s degree program is the writing, presentation, and defense of a thesis based on original research. The thesis, an extended essay of approximately 100 pages, addresses a topic chosen by the student in consultation with the faculty advisor who serves as chair of the supervisory committee. The thesis explores a limited subject in depth, analyzing, explaining, and drawing conclusions from the information gleaned from primary and secondary sources. The thesis thereby demonstrates the student's ability to do research in the primary sources of the field, survey and synthesize the relevant secondary literature on the topic, organize and develop an argument, analyze and argue points cogently, and write well. Primary sources are broadly construed to include a variety of original source materials, e.g., diaries, letters, oral histories, government documents, photographic evidence, and material culture objects. Public History theses are expected to be of similar length to a traditional thesis and be constructed around a research question and related scholarly literature. In completing the thesis, students must enroll in 6 credit-hours of thesis (HST 599). Before writing the thesis: Master s students will prepare a five page overview of the thesis project, which will include a discussion of the topic, primary sources, methodology, and relevant secondary literature, as well as a bibliography of primary and secondary sources before they begin the thesis. The document should be provided to each member of the supervisory committee before the student registers for thesis hours (HST 599). Each member of the committee should provide feedback to the student on the thesis project. This can be 7

8 done individually, or in a meeting of the entire committee, at the discretion of the committee chair. Once each member of the committee has approved the project, they should inform the student and the committee chair. The student may then enroll in HST 599 hours. If the committee decides that the student is not ready to proceed with the thesis, the student and the Director of Graduate Studies should be informed in writing of what measures need to be taken before the student can proceed. Thesis format: Style manuals, such as A Manual for Writers by Kate L. Turabian or The Chicago Manual of Style, are followed in the preparation of the thesis; the style manual is determined by the committee chair. The Graduate College requires its Format Manual be used in preparing the final document; the Graduate College also requires a format review prior to the defense. Please consult the Graduate College format requirements at the following website: Thesis defense: As the candidate nears completion of research and writing, each committee member must be provided an opportunity to review a draft of the thesis before the final draft is prepared for the oral defense. Members of the committee should be given the draft manuscript at least one month prior to the date of the defense to make critical comments about the arguments, narrative, footnotes, and bibliography, so the student has an opportunity to make revisions before the defense. A schedule for submitting materials to the committee should be determined in consultation with the committee chair and each member of the committee. Each member of the committee must be provided a copy (paper or electronic) of the final draft for the oral defense. The three faculty members who officially make up the supervisory committee must agree prior to scheduling the oral defense that the thesis is ready to be defended. The oral defense is open to the public and advertised to the whole School of Historical, Philosophical, and Religious Studies and posted on the graduate college s website. Defenses include a presentation of the argument of the thesis by the candidate and questions from each of the committee members. Defenses are scheduled for 2 hours. The deliberations at its conclusion are closed and reserved exclusively for members of the supervisory committee. The committee may vote to pass the thesis, pass the thesis with required revisions, or fail the thesis. Once approved by the committee, the thesis is submitted to the Graduate College through ProQuest, the online publication company. This is accessed through the student s MyASU page. An electronic copy of a thesis accepted in partial fulfillment of degree candidacy by the Graduate College is available through Hayden Library as an online text. According to Graduate College regulations, the candidate must complete the final oral defense of the thesis within six years of the student s entry into the program. The Thesis Equivalent Option With the approval of the student s committee and the Director of Graduate Studies, students have the option of preparing a Master s Thesis Equivalent as the culminating experience for a Master s degree. Students who select the thesis equivalent option are not eligible to apply for the Ph.D. degree in History at ASU. To continue on for a Ph.D. students must write a thesis. 8

9 The thesis equivalent may take several forms depending on the career track of the student. For those intending a career in historical research the thesis equivalent consists of a research paper based on primary sources and a historiographical essay, each at least 25 typed pages. The historiographical essay and the research paper should complement each other and fit into a coherent field of study. Students in Public History as well as those aimed at a career in K- 12 education may complete an applied project (HST 593) in lieu of the thesis. Each option is described below. Research option: For this thesis equivalent option, students must include within the 30-hour Plan of Study a total of 6 credit-hours of HST 591 (seminar) plus 6 hours of HST 592 (research) in lieu of HST 599. During the six credit-hours of HST 592, which are supervised by the student s thesis advisor, the student will prepare the research paper and historiographical paper for an oral defense. The historiographical essay is patterned after the historiographical review articles appearing in professional journals such as the American Historical Review. The essay might take different formats, for example, a discussion of the contextual literature that places the research paper in a larger historiographical context. Or the paper might be prepared in two segments: one, a broader section providing a survey of the literature on the larger historical topic and any debates or trends in the writing, and second, a more specialized discussion evaluating the literature on a specific issue within the larger historical topic. The committee chair is responsible for determining, with the student, which books and topics are to be discussed in the essay. The research paper may be based on revised seminar papers. It must be a minimum of 25 pages, excluding notes and bibliography. Based on primary documentation, it should be similar to articles appearing in peer-reviewed historical journals. While a seminar paper may provide the basis for the research paper, the student should recognize that simply submitting an existing seminar paper will not fulfill the requirement. The seminar paper will require further research and revision before it can be submitted for defense as the thesis equivalent. Applied Project option: Public History students and K-12 teachers earning the M.A. may prepare and defend an applied project as the culminating experience demonstrating graduatelevel professional accomplishment. For the applied project option, students must include within the 30-hour Plan of Study six credit-hours of HST 593 in lieu of HST 599. For Public History students, the project may be based on a documentary editing project, an exhibit report, exhibit design, historical interpretation plan, historic preservation project report, scholarly publishing, etc. For K-12 teachers, the applied project will normally involve curriculum assessment and development placed in the context of the scholarly literature related to the teaching and learning of history. In all cases, the applied project will represent an extensive and original scholarly investigation by the student in consultation with their advisor and committee. A prospectus is not required but the student and advisor should clearly agree in writing regarding the parameters and requirements of the applied project before the student enrolls in HST

10 Thesis equivalent oral defense: The thesis equivalent requires an oral defense. Before scheduling the oral defense, the student provides each committee member with drafts of written work. The schedule for submitting work and the oral defense should be determined in consultation with the committee chair. Committee members need a few weeks to review these works and return comments, and the student should expect to make revisions before the final defense. Although these papers do not need to be submitted to the Graduate College for format review, the format must be approved by the thesis advisor and must follow guidelines in Turabian or the Chicago Manual of Style. The oral defense is open to the public, though the deliberations at its conclusion are reserved exclusively for members of the supervisory committee. After deliberation, the committee may pass the student s work as a whole, or may fail it as a whole. There is no pass with revisions option for the defense of the thesis equivalent MA. Master s in Passing The History faculty offers a Master s in Passing (MiP) to Ph.D. students admitted into the program without a master s degree in History. Once Ph.D. students have completed their regular coursework (all but the research and thesis credits) and passed their qualifying exams, they may apply for the Master s in Passing with the approval of the student s advisor and the Director of Graduate Studies. Passage of the qualifying exams serves as the culminating experience for the MiP. To earn the MiP, the student must complete the Graduate College s Application for a Master s in Passing. Only students who are continuing in the Ph.D. program may apply for the MiP. Those who have completed qualifying exams but do not plan to continue in the Ph.D. program should file a Change of Plan form with the Graduate College to transfer to the M.A degree program and complete a Master s thesis or thesis equivalent. Continuous Enrollment: Once students are admitted, the Graduate College requires continuous enrollment in coursework each semester, excluding summer. A student in a master s degree program who does not enroll for one semester is considered withdrawn from the university and must fully reapply for admission to resume his or her degree program. If continuous enrollment is broken and the student reapplies to the program, the History faculty has the option of denying re-admission. Once the Plan of Study courses have been completed, the student may enroll in one credit of HST 595 to meet the continuous enrollment requirement until the degree is completed. III. The Doctor of Philosophy Degree in History 10

11 Ph.D. Plan of Study at a Glance: Students must select a primary field and a secondary field. There is a written qualifying exam in the primary field and an oral portfolio defense for the secondary field. For guidance through the program, students select a supervisory committee of at least three faculty members, with the student s advisor serving as committee chair. Students also select a separate secondary field committee to evaluate their secondary field portfolio. The primary field qualifying examination is administered by an ad hoc field committee composed of professors who have taught the core courses. The Ph.D. degree requires 84 total credit hours beyond the B.A. Students with a Master s degree in History are allowed to apply 30 credit-hours of that degree toward the 84 total credit-hours required for the Ph.D. program. 60 credit-hours must be in History courses and must meet the following requirements: 54 credit hours in residence at ASU Up to 9 hours of relevant graduate level work may be transferred in from another institution if those credits have not been applied to another degree. The credits must be approved by the Director of Graduate Studies All credit hours must be at the 500 level or above. At least nine credit hours in the primary field and six in the secondary field. (These will normally be HST 598 or HST 591 courses but may include directed readings-hst 790.) 3 credit hours of HST 500 (historical theory and methodology) required during the first year 9 credit hours of 591 (research seminars). 6 credit hours of core field courses (U.S. and European majors only). 24 credit hours of dissertation research (12 hours each of HST 792 and 799) The Ph.D. Plan of Study Details Admission with a Master s Degree: For students admitted to the doctoral program with a master s degree, the requirements for the Ph.D. are an additional minimum 54 semester hours of credit in residence at ASU, consisting of 30 hours of course work and 24 hours of dissertation research and writing. All 54 hours must be taken at ASU after admission to the doctoral program. Admission with a Bachelor s Degree: For students admitted to the doctoral program directly from a bachelor s degree, the requirements for the Ph.D. are 84 credit-hours, consisting of 60 hours of coursework and 24 hours of dissertation research and writing. A minimum of 54 of these credit-hours must be taken while the student is in residence at ASU after admission to the Ph.D. program. Coursework: The Ph.D. program includes the following required courses: 11

12 HST 500: This historical theory and methodology class is required of all Ph.D. students. It provides a rigorous introduction to the intellectual and historiographical foundations of the historical discipline, coordinated by one professor and team-taught by several members of the history faculty. HST 598 core courses: two courses for each primary field (team-taught for students in the North American and European fields) depict the breadth of knowledge and interpretive trends in these fields and provide preparation for the qualifying exams. HST 598 historiography courses: Intensive readings in specific areas of study for primary and secondary fields, and in preparation for dissertation research. HST 591: Research seminars that provide opportunities to learn advanced research design and prepare article-length research papers. HST 590 and 790: individualized readings and conferences courses custom-arranged with a single professor are available to support student preparation in fields of specialization. HST 692: The doctoral program requires the demonstration of an advanced research skill to support dissertation research. HST 792 & 799: these doctoral dissertation research courses are taken after all other coursework is finished and they complete the Plan of Study. Supervisory Committee and Chair: When applying to the doctoral program students should communicate directly with the faculty with whom they wish to study and attempt to identify a suitable major advisor. The major advisor must be a member of the Graduate Faculty and must be endorsed to chair PhD dissertations. For a list of Graduate Faculty for the History Ph.D., see Ph.D. students are not admitted to the program unless there is a professor willing to serve as advisor. The advisor works with the student to select at least two other faculty members to serve on the student s supervisory committee based on their expertise. The other two members of the committee must be selected and approved by the Graduate College before the student takes the qualifying exam. A student may change committee members, including the advisor, with the approval of both the Director of Graduate Studies and the new committee member or advisor. Planning the Plan of Study: The student s supervisory committee should meet at least once with the student during the first year of study to help the student determine an appropriate secondary field and research specialization, to select courses for the Plan of Study, to identify one or more suitable advanced research skill(s) to support dissertation research, and to develop a written plan for how the research skill will be acquired and competency demonstrated. The official Plan of Study must be submitted by April 1 of the first year of study. The Plan of Study is filed electronically on-line with the Graduate College. Audited courses cannot be included on the official Plan of Study. No courses with a grade of I can be included on the Plan of Study. No course with a grade of C or below can be included on the Plan of Study. Advanced Research Skill: The History faculty requires candidates to demonstrate an 12

13 advanced research skill important to their research work in the discipline. Demonstration of advanced skill in a foreign language will be expected from some supervisory committees, particularly those in the East Asian, European, and Latin American fields. Some committees may require more than one foreign language or more than one non-linguistic advanced research skill. Foreign language skills may be demonstrated in advanced courses, by degrees already completed, undergraduate course work, examinations, etc. The supervisory committee is responsible for determining the appropriate benchmarks of proficiency. While the supervisory committee determines the foreign language competency needed, other advanced research skills require a proposal to state how proficiency in the skill will be developed and demonstrated. Research skills may include such things as quantitative methods of analysis, oral history training, GIS mapping, documentary editing, training in archival management, and historic preservation; or may involve interdisciplinary training in fields relevant to the student s research interests, such as geography, anthropology, sociology, political science or public administration, literature, ethnic studies, women s studies, ecology, etc. These interdisciplinary skills may be developed and demonstrated through appropriate course work in that discipline and/or professional experience. Advanced Research Skill Proposal and Demonstration of Competency: By the end of the first year of study, the student must, in consultation with his or her committee chair, decide on an advanced research skill. Advanced research skills may be demonstrated in the following ways: Passing a foreign language exam administered by SILC or by a competent examiner. Completing all the requirements for a graduate certificate. Completing an advanced research skill that has been approved by the student s supervisory committee and the Director of Graduate Studies. In order to receive approval, the student must submit a proposal that includes detailed information concerning how the skill will be acquired and how competency will be demonstrated. The minimum requirements for acquiring competency in an advanced research skill are successful completion of two classes focusing on the skill in question. In one of these courses, the student should complete a project that demonstrates competency in the skill Competency in the advanced research skill will be indicated on the Plan of Study by the course designation HST 692. All doctoral students must enroll in one credit of 692 during the semester when they intend to demonstrate their competence in the research skill. A student s major advisor or a designee approved by the advisor will serve as the instructor of record for the 692. The student must receive a passing grade in this course before s/he will be allowed to take the oral qualifying exam in the research field. 13

14 Primary field Preparation: The faculty members in each of the primary fields have developed a required reading list and offer a set of two required core courses based upon those reading lists. Due to higher enrollments, the North American core courses are offered every year and the European core courses are offered every other year. The Latin American and East Asian core courses are offered whenever demand is sufficient, occasionally as directed readings courses (HST 790). The reading list and the two affiliated core courses provide preparation for the qualifying examination. Students will have opportunities to take additional readings and research courses in their primary field that will further prepare them for the exams and for dissertation research. Qualifying Examination: The History program administers a written qualifying examination that tests the student s competence in the primary field and determines whether the student is ready to move on to dissertation research. The qualifying examination will normally be administered at the start of the fall semester of a student s third year in the program for students entering with a master s degree and the start of the fourth year for students entering directly from a baccalaureate program. Before taking the qualifying examination, doctoral students must complete all course work on the Plan of Study except for dissertation research credits (HST 792 and 799). Students in each field (Asia, Europe, Latin America, North America, and Public History) will take a common exam administered and evaluated by at least three faculty members, two of whom will be the most recent instructors of the core courses in that field, and one of whom will be chosen by the field committee. The examining committee for each field will write the examination questions, decide the number of questions that students will be required to answer, and decide upon their methods of deliberation. All committees must include some element of choice in the exam questions (for example, requiring students to answer four out of six questions). Students will have seven calendar days to complete this take-home exam, which will require students to answer two to four questions. The written responses to the questions should be approximately 12,500 to 15,000 words, double-spaced, 12-point font (Times New Roman). Citation requirements will be provided to students prior to the exam. After careful deliberations, committee members will decide whether the student has passed or failed. The committee may recommend to the Director of Graduate Studies a pass with distinction for extraordinary performance. If a student has been informed that they have failed the qualifying exam, they may petition the Graduate College to retake the exam. Students should complete the petition and obtain, in the following order, the signatures of (1) each member of the examining committee, (2) the Director of Graduate Studies, and (3) the Faculty Head. While in most cases, students who fail the exam are allowed to retake it, if, in the judgment of the examining committee, the student s exam responses are seriously inadequate (e.g., badly flawed or limited analysis, addressing only a few books on the reading list, 14

15 considerably shorter than the required length), the examining committee may recommend to the Director of Graduate studies against allowing the student to take the exam. In cases of serious misconduct (including plagiarism) the unit may also decide not to support the student s petition. This recommendation must be made in writing by the examining committee to the Director of Graduate Studies and the Faculty Head. In these circumstances, the Director of Graduate Studies, acting on behalf of the examining committee and after consulting with the Faculty Head, will inform the Graduate College of the reasons why the petition was not supported. As per Graduate College policy, the student may submit the petition to the Graduate College without the approval of the unit. If approved by the Graduate College, the student will be permitted to retake the exam. Retakes will be scheduled at regular intervals: roughly three months following the initial exam and roughly six months following the initial exam. Retakes may not be taken earlier than three months after the initial exam, nor later than six months after the initial exam. After consulting with his or her adviser and the examining committee, the student will inform the Director of Graduate Studies of the desired retake date. Once the retake exam is scheduled, no postponements are allowed, except under exceptional circumstances that must be documented and approved by the Director of Graduate Studies with the agreement of the examining committee. Failed exams can only be retaken once. A student may not continue in the program without passing the qualifying exam. Secondary Field: The secondary field is designed to provide breadth of training and opportunities for comparative study across geographic regions. Consequently, the secondary field can be a geographic region other than that which a student selects as their primary field (for example, a student whose primary field is North America can choose Europe as a secondary field), or a theme-based field that involves training across two or more geographic regions. The secondary field should be in a thematic or geographic area that will prepare students for their dissertation research as well as for teaching upper-level courses. Examples of secondary fields include (but are not limited to): Atlantic history, indigenous studies, gender and women s history, religious studies, and urban history. Secondary fields may also be based on courses taken and books read for a certificate program (in this case, however, a portfolio must still be prepared and a portfolio defense held). Students may also customdesign a secondary field. While the topic of the secondary field is usually broad (e.g. gender and women s history), the most successful secondary fields are focused around specific topics or questions that serve as a focus for the bibliography and historiographical essay. If Public History is selected as the primary field then one of the other four geographic fields will serve as a second primary field in lieu of a secondary field. Study in the secondary field consists of course work (at least 6 credits) and mastery of a reading list of 50 titles (of which up to ten may be articles) agreed upon by the student and the secondary field committee. If the secondary field is designed to be comparative geographically, courses taken for this field should reflect that. The bibliography and the written work submitted to the portfolio should reflect this comparative aspect as well. Books 15

16 on the secondary field reading list can overlap with the qualifying exam reading list. During the first year of study each student must establish a secondary field committee to guide him/her through coursework, directed readings, and the development and defense of the portfolio for that field. The secondary field committee must be comprised of at least three faculty members. If the secondary field is a comparative theme, the committee must include professors with expertise in more than one geographic region. Committee members can serve on both the secondary field committee and the dissertation committee. Students may, with the agreement of the chair of the secondary field committee, take a directed readings course (HST 790) in the semester in which the portfolio will be compiled and defended. Students are strongly urged to consult with all committee members before the portfolio defense concerning the historiographical essay; they may receive comments on and revise the essay before the portfolio defense is held. Students must include a one-page description of the secondary field and a tentative bibliography in the first-year review portfolio. A final version of the description of the secondary field and a final bibliography must be approved by the student and all committee members by the end of the third week of the semester in which the secondary field portfolio is to be defended. Once this document has been approved by all parties, no changes to the bibliography can be made. To document approval, the student should the Director of Graduate Studies indicating that the committee has approved the bibliography. All committee members should be copied on the and a copy of the bibliography should be attached to the . Secondary Field Portfolio Defense: Before the secondary field examination is held, students must prepare a portfolio that includes: A one-page description of the secondary field A 30 page historiographical essay about the field based on the reading list Papers written for any courses taken in the secondary field Plus one of the following: - An original syllabus for a course in the field - A prospectus for research in the field - A grant or fellowship proposal relevant to the field The portfolio must be submitted to the secondary field committee and defended before qualifying exams. Typically, the defense will be held by the end of the sixth semester for students coming in with a B.A. or end of the fourth semester for students coming in with an M.A. The portfolio defense will be a discussion among members of the committee and the student concerning the materials submitted in the portfolio. Discussion may be focused on the 16

17 historiographical essay, the books on the bibliography, and/or the other materials submitted as part of the portfolio. The goal of the portfolio defense is to assess the student s ability to write and speak clearly and knowledgeably about the field and how it applies to the student s research and/or teaching interests. At the end of the defense, the student will be asked to leave the room while the committee decides on one of the following options: (1) pass (2) pass with revisions (3) or fail. If the result of the portfolio defense is pass with revisions, students should be given specific instructions in writing as to what revisions need to be made. Students may complete revisions following qualifying exams, but no later than the beginning of the spring semester following qualifying exams. If the result of the portfolio defense is fail, students may revise and resubmit the portfolio for a second portfolio defense, which must be held within one calendar year. A second failure may result in the student being asked to leave the program. After the portfolio defense, the chair of the secondary field committee should send an to the Graduate Coordinator indicating the result of the exam. The student, all members of the committee, and the Director of Graduate Studies should be copied on the . Dissertation Prospectus: Upon satisfactory completion of the written qualifying examination, the candidate will immediately begin to prepare for the submission of the dissertation prospectus, which the candidate should defend no later than the close of the spring semester following the qualifying exam. The student will prepare a prospectus of approximately double-spaced pages (plus a single-spaced bibliography appended at the end) that includes the following: A clear statement of the topic and the proposed thesis, including all the major questions to be explored. A discussion of the historiographical and theoretical context of the study and the contribution that it will make to the scholarly literature on the topic. Students should address in particular the originality of their study and its significance. An explanation of the research methods to be used and the types of primary source documents to be consulted. The student should comment on the ways in which the sources and methods will shape the analysis and justify the choice of sources and methods. A tentative chapter outline, with brief summaries (one paragraph) of each chapter s contents. A tentative schedule for research, writing, and completing the project. This section should include an accounting of the preliminary research that the student has already completed on the topic and what research remains to be accomplished. A preliminary bibliography, listing the principal secondary sources and the major archival or other primary sources to be used. 17

18 Dissertation Prospectus Defense: The supervisory committee will administer the prospectus defense and mentor the student on the work of the dissertation. The discussion at the defense will include a thorough review and critique of the prospectus to ensure that the student is well-prepared for independent research and that the dissertation will meet rigorous scholarly standards. Following the prospectus defense, the candidate will be excused for the committee to deliberate. The committee may recommend the student for admission to doctoral candidacy to the Graduate College, or ask that further work be done on the prospectus, or refuse to advance the student to candidacy. If revisions are required, approvals of the revisions can be the responsibility of the committee chair, or require full committee review, or necessitate another oral exam/defense. The committee chair will report the results and any conditions via to the Graduate Coordinator and the Director of Graduate Studies. The student and all members of the committee must be copied on this . After the committee has approved the prospectus and recommended that the student advance to candidacy, the Dean of the Graduate College approves candidacy. Once a student is admitted to candidacy s/he may enroll in HST 799 (dissertation research). Prior to admission to candidacy the student must enroll in HST 792 for dissertation-related research. It is the responsibility of the student to verify that the Graduate College has formally granted candidacy. Dissertation: The dissertation must be an original contribution to knowledge and demonstrate the candidate's proficiency in independent research and historical exposition. The committee chair determines the style guide for the dissertation, the Chicago Manual of Style or Turabian s Manual for Writers, for example. The Format Manual published by the Graduate College must be used in preparation of the dissertation for format review prior to the final dissertation defense: As the candidate nears completion of research and writing, each committee member must be provided an opportunity to review a draft of the dissertation before the final draft is prepared for the oral defense. Members of the committee should be given the draft manuscript at least one month prior to the date of the defense to make critical comments about the arguments, narrative, footnotes, and bibliography, so the student has an opportunity to make revisions before the defense. A schedule for submitting materials to the committee should be determined in consultation with the committee chair and each member of the committee. Each member of the committee must be provided a copy of the final draft for the oral defense. Oral Defense of the Dissertation: The three faculty members who officially make up the supervisory committee must agree prior to scheduling the oral defense that the dissertation is ready to be defended. The oral defense is open to the public and advertised to the whole school. Defenses include a presentation of the argument of the dissertation by the candidate and questions from each of the committee members. Normally, defenses take no more than 2 hours. At the time of the defense, members may approve the dissertation, delay their decision at the orals pending further revisions by the student, or approve leaving the revisions to the supervision of the committee chair. According to Graduate College regulations, the candidate 18

19 must complete the final oral defense of the dissertation within five years after passing the qualifying examinations. A one-year extension of this deadline may be granted if approved by the supervisory committee and the Dean of the Graduate College. In 2008, the Graduate College implemented a rule stipulating that a Ph.D. degree must be completed in ten years, from start to finish or within five years of passing the comprehensive exams, whichever time period is shorter. Summary of Milestones for the Ph.D. Plan of Study for Students: FIRST YEAR Complete 18 credit-hours of course work, including HST 500, one core course for the primary field, one course for the secondary field, at least one 591 seminar, and the first semester of PFF.
