The Department and the Graduate School have a variety of resources to support students in their research, writing, and professional development. These include travel grants for dissertation research and for delivering papers at scholarly conferences, grants for summer language study, and fellowships awarded on a competitive basis to support dissertation writing.
Since financial awards for doctoral study are based on academic merit rather than need, applicants for admission should request funding in all but extraordinary cases. All first-year students who do not have external financial awards (federal, state, or private) normally receive University Fellowships and Graduate Assistantships consisting of a full tuition payment and an additional stipend to cover living expenses. The department guarantees support for the first five years of study, including four years of summer support.

Master of Arts Degree
The M.A. program in History on the Indianapolis campus offers three areas of concentration: United States history, European history, and public history. United States and European history are traditional areas of concentration and will serve the needs of persons intending to pursue a doctoral program, those seeking a collateral degree to complement such other fields as education or library science, and individuals seeking personal fulfillment.
Public history is designed to prepare persons interested in pursuing careers as historians in such settings as historical societies, museums, historic preservation organizations, and historic parks, governmental agencies, and business corporations. With its proximity to a large number of such institutions, the Indianapolis campus is an ideal location at which to pursue a degree in public history.
Master of Arts Degree admission requirements are:
1.Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university, with an overall undergraduate grade point average of at least 3.0 and a minimum grade point average of 3.0 in the student’s undergraduate major.
2. The applicants with a post-graduate degree are not required to submit GRE scores.
3.Three letters of recommendation.
There is no foreign language requirement for the degree per sem. However, those students who will incorporate foreign language documents in their graduate work will be expected to translate non-English sources. They must thus demonstrate an appropriate level of competence in the relevant language before they begin work on their thesis.
