What are the Program Requirements?
All Hagley Scholars are required to complete 30 credits (ten classes). Some of these classes must be selected to fulfill History Department requirements. Hagley Scholars must also take two Hagley courses which reflect student and faculty interests. Ph.D. students take a written comprehensive examination and write a dissertation. A thesis is optional for M.A. students. About half of all Hagley students also choose to complete a museum studies certificate.
