The department also offers a post-master’s certificate in archives and records management to students who already possess an advanced degree from an accredited institution.
Admissions: Those seeking the ARM certificate apply to the Graduate School as post-master’s degree candidates. Applicants whose advanced degree is in a field other than history must take at least one history course in addition to certificate requirements (see below). Graduate Record Examination scores are recommended, but not required. See other application information for the History MA program.
The foreign language requirement may be met in one of two ways: by passing an exam approved or administered by the department; or by earning a B grade or higher in the last course of a second-year language program. Courses graded on a pass/no pass basis would not qualify for satisfying the language requirement. Tests and course work taken before entry into the graduate program may be counted if completed within five years of acceptance into the graduate program. Both ARM master’s and post-master’s students may demonstrate computer programming competence, in lieu of a foreign language, by completing a three course sequence (CSCI 112, CSCI 202, MIS 314) with final course grade of B or better, or as approved by the history faculty.
ARM Certificate Requirements
