Normally, students will prepare at least one geographical/temporal field, usually the major field, and at least one distribution field different in area and/or time from the major field. Students will customize another field to the specific needs, in consultation with their advisor and the Director of Graduate Studies. This field can be geographical, temporal, topical, or methodological. Students are also required to offer a cognate field in another discipline or interdisciplinary program on a subject that will enrich their preparation for teaching and research in history. Other programs may be pursued with the approval of the Graduate Committee.

General Examination: General examination fields in history are of two broad types:

  1. "geographic-chronological," which include a broad range of human activities and human beings within a particular region during a specified era, and
  2. "topical," which focus on a particular type of human activity or group of human beings, sometimes in one country, sometimes in more than one.

Students are normally expected to choose at least two geographic-chronological fields, which are usually important in preparation for teaching and in providing a broad background for research. Students also must choose a "distribution field" (either geographic-chronological or topical) that will expose them to historical problems very different from those in their major field. The point of the General Examination is to prepare students as effectively as possible for their careers as historians. The Department is receptive to appropriate modifications in the usual patterns of fields.

The General Examination consists of two parts. The first is a written examination in the field of the student's dissertation (the major field). The second is an oral examination in four fields, including the major field. The second part should come within two weeks of the first. The requirements for a fifth field (it may be a field of history or the cognate field) may be met in one of three ways: (1) the student may, with the approval of the Graduate Committee and the instructors involved, satisfy the requirements for this field by passing six hours of integrated course work with graduate credit and grades of B+ or better; (2) the student may choose a written examination which is to be taken well in advance of the General Examination; (3) in special cases, as indicated below, the student may present an appropriate language in lieu of the cognate field. In the latter instance, the student is examined on all appropriate history fields at the General Examination.
