There are two ways to begin your graduate study in history:
1. Students may take up to 3 courses on a non-matriculated basis by simply registering via the web, or by mail or in person. Assistance in doing so can be obtained from the Office of Graduate Admissions (585) 395-5465. It would be useful, however, to consult with the Director of Graduate Studies in History before registering so as to match the courses to your own needs and background as closely as possible.
2. A somewhat more formal process is required for admission to the MA in History as a matriculated degree candidate.
You will need to submit the following credentials to the Office of Graduate Admissions. The necessary forms can be obtained from that office at (585) 395-2231 or from the Department of History at (585) 395-2231 or by writing to the department at SUNY Brockport, 350 New Campus Drive Brockport, NY 14420. Please call or write.
Please submit your application materials to the Office of Graduate Admissions by April 15 to be considered for summer admission; by July 1 for fall-semester admission; and by November 15 for spring-semester admission.
In assessing these materials, the Graduate Committee in the Department of History will consider the following:
We will notify you promptly about the decision of the Committee. As always, please feel free to be in touch with the Graduate Director during any stage of this process.
