Welcome Letter and Application Deadlines

Dear Prospective Graduate Student:

Thank you for your interest in our Graduate Program in History (M.A. degree). The aim of our program is to empower our students to enrich their own lives and the life of their community through a fuller understanding of the past. We believe that by giving students the tools necessary to write and to teach history, we can build a community that embraces diversity. The rich resources of the local community and of the Nabb Research Center for Delmarva History and Culture will provide “community-as-laboratory” tools for solid training in the particular problems of writing history. Students will receive rigorous training in conducting research, constructing persuasive arguments, and writing compellingly.

A complete application requires the following items:
1. Salisbury University Application for Graduate Program Admission Form/Residency (returned to Office of Admissions with $50 Non-Refundable Application Fee)
2. Graduate Program in History Application Form (return to History Department)
3. Graduate Program in History Recommendation Forms (3)

In order to be accepted for the program, files should be completed in the Office of Admissions and the History Department by the following deadlines for the term indicated:

FALL          May 15
