HIST 301 - The Historian’s Craft

Credits: (3)
Domain (Anchored): CSI
This course is designed for history majors or for students who intend to be history majors. Ideally, they will take this class either in the semester in which they declare their history major, or in the following term. The class will familiarize students with historiographical schools and with the idea of history as a discipline while also covering the arts and techniques of historical writing. It will typically require a final paper demonstrating the use of reason, evidence, compositional skills, and scholarly apparatus.  This course should be taken prior to the capstone seminar, HIST 490/491.
