HIST 302 - Research in History: (subtitle)


2021-2022 Catalog Year

Credit(s): 4
Lecture: 4
Non-Lecture: 0
This is one of two required skills-based seminars in the History major that form prerequisites for upper level classes. This course is focused on critical analysis of historical evidence and instruction in historical research methods and writing. Students read, evaluate, and critique a range of different types of primary source evidence, practice locating and retrieving reliable primary and secondary sources, and use these skills to support the crafting of historical arguments in both short papers and longer research projects. All sections will focus on a specific set of historical issues and/or events chosen by the instructor and class content emphasizes work with primary sources specific to the seminar topic. The class is reading and writing intensive. Majors may take HIST 301  and 302 in any sequence, and should plan to complete both HIST 301  and 302 during the sophomore or junior year.

Prerequisite(s): Sophomore standing or higher.
Offered: Every Fall Semester, Every Spring Semester
