Languages:

That will depend on what area you are specializing in the Masters. I was obligated to pass a Yiddish and a German exam to continue before graduation.

Terminal? you never stop studying, I hope even after you get the Masters and don't go to a PhD.
No American specialist was expected to take another language, the rest of us yes.

Some folks study history while other s live and make it.Hopefully there is a blend because without knowing history,it is bound to repeat.

And you do neither. The fact is you know absolutely NOTHING about historical research from the poor quality of the selection of Anti Semitic crapole you post because of your disfunctional hate. Personally I would bet you don't even have a history degree or ever went to a college. No offense, but from the depravity of your posts you do not show you are college material and I am not the only one who thinks so.

Yes but Rachel, you know what I mean. A "terminal Masters" is what it is referred to as.

I guess the truth hurts when you pretend you have a history degree or you know what you are talking about. Seriously you wouldn't know historical research if it came and bit you in the rear. No offense but why pretend you are a scholar when you do not know what the word means? All you are and will ever be is a bigot. And as for trying to be evil, no, you ARE evil.

You claim to know history yet you repeat the same anti Semitic rants of the Nazis. Obviously you learned nothing from your own readings. I love people who think they can learn all they need to know of history from a newspaper or racist website. You can't.

Since this is about history degrees, I'll post my own dilemma at the moment. I'll graduate with a B.A. (Hons) in ancient and medieval history and a minor in ancient Greek in a few months. I was accepted into an M.Phil program at Oxford in Byzantine Studies. This is what I want to do. The problem is that it is extremely expensive. I can afford it, but then afterwards I will still have a PhD to do, no money whatsoever left, and some debt. Alternatively, I could go to the University of Ottawa and do an M.A. in Late Roman History where I'll get a rather generous quantity of funding, enough that it probably won't cost me anything. The Ottawa program is good, but it isn't Oxford, and I've heard that the Oxford experience is everything. On the other hand, I got to into Oxford once, and I can do it again. I still intend to do the D. Phil there. Thoughts? (I laid this out in more detail on my blog: http://fromthegardenintothecity.wordpress.com/2012/01/30/thoughts-and-thinking-on-graduate-study-at-oxford/ )

K,
I envy you. What I would have given to study at Oxford. That being said, I would do the MA in Ottawa and then do the Phd at Oxford since generally it is the last degree that counts most.

I received a degree in history in 1975 and attempted teaching ( which I hated). I decided that rather than try teaching history I would seek a career in documenting it. I became a photojournalist in 1981 and worked in that field until 2010. I continued (and still continue) to study the history of WWI & WWII in my leasure time. Both wars have been a passion on mine since childhood. My grandfather was a soldier and was wounded and gassed in WWI and my father was a flyer in the Army Air Corps in WWII.

Teaching High School can be a good career - if you're willing to work in a location some consider undesirable, such as a Reservation, jobs are available. I did it and I've never regretted it. Of course, teaching High School is not for everyone, but it can be a good career with good benefits.

Good to find you here.

I am in agreement with your wise advice.

Dr. Galvin:

I am glad that you discovered that teaching is not for you soon enough instead of suffering it through and making students suffer.
Great that you found another satisfying career that is wonderful.
I do love research, but there is nothing like being with young people and teaching. The latter is not for everybody. It is wonderful to find such honesty.
