HIST 299: Historian's Craft: Home

Historian's Craft (HIST 299) is a topic-based course in which students deal with different types of historical materials and techniques to develop skills in research, writing, critical thinking, and oral presentation, focused on the discipline of History. This is the foundational course of the History major and is designed to prepare History majors and minors for upper-level courses and the capstone research seminar. 

Library and Archival Instruction Goal: By the end of library information and archival literacy sessions students will have the skills to identify contextually appropriate tools and sources to answer research questions.
