APPLY TO GRADUATE SCHOOL AFTER COMPLETING YOUR UNDERGRADUATE DEGREE!
Graduate school applications, normally due in December or January, are a project in themselves. Plan ahead. As a rough guideline, you need a minimum B+ average. An Honours BA is sufficient; Specialized Honours is not necessary. Applications ask for a well-articulated personal statement and at least two letters of reference from university teachers. The History Department runs annual workshops on the process. For further information on applying to York’s Graduate Program in History (which is first-rate) can be obtained from the Graduate Program Office (2172 Vari Hall).
