This small seminar is required of all History majors and minors as an essential introduction to the ideas and practices of studying history and conducting historical research.  With this goal in mind, students read a selection of books and articles touching on different periods, world regions, and historiographical approaches that expose the many ways historians do their work.  

Majors and. Minors must complete this course (with a C or higher).

This is the first of a two-step sequence to prepare History Majors for their Capstone experience (HIST5000). Majors are encouraged to enroll in their 4000-level requirement (the second step) after they have successfully completed HIST3000.
