What are the Program Requirements?

All Hagley Fellows are required to complete 30 credits (ten classes). Some of these classes must be selected to fulfill History Department requirements. Hagley Fellows also must take two “Hagley courses” which reflect student and faculty interests. These are offered every semester. 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.
