The university requires a one-time $50 application fee.
For those applying for admittance into the Fall 2024 M.A. in History program, the Department will be able to assist with covering the cost of the application fee. For more information about this, please contact the Chair of the Graduate Committee, Dr. Alexandra Kelly.
Admission to the M.A. program is granted for fall semester only. As the application process is entirely online, please do not mail any documents (transcripts should be sent to the U.W. Office of Admissions). In addition to the main application, the following supporting documents are required:
Letters of Recommendation
Three letters of recommendation are required, and ideally should come from undergraduate instructors with whom you have had sustained contact. Instructors of seminars and smaller, discussion-based classes will often have the best idea of your skills and interests. Once you have supplied contact information for your recommenders, the Admissions Office will email them with instructions for submitting their letters.
Include transcripts from all institutions you have attended after high school. You may upload unofficial transcripts for coursework in progress, but note that formal acceptance will be contingent upon receipt of official, final transcripts. You do not need to submit transcripts for coursework completed at the University of Wyoming.
This should be 10 to 20 pages and represent your best and most sophisticated writing. A senior thesis or undergraduate seminar paper would be ideal.
Statement of Purpose
This should tell us about your interests, your reasons for wanting to pursue a graduate degree, and something about your future plans. Use the questions at the top of this page as a guideline. It should be between 250 and 500 words in length.
The Department will no longer require GRE scores for MA applications.
If you have further questions, please contact Dr. Alexandra Kelly, the Chair of the Graduate Committee.
