Historical Methods

The content of these courses (in terms of both geographic area and historical period) varies from instructor to instructor. All are designed to familiarize students with the methods and procedures used by historians in researching and writing about important historical trends and events. Course activities include using primary and secondary sources; developing a sense of interpretation grounded in creative, but responsible scholarship; improving writing skills in analytical, response and research papers; and giving oral presentations.
