as independent research related to the selected topic(s). Prerequisites: one 300-level history course or permission of the instructor; and for History majors, HIST 301 and HIST 302. Offered every fall & spring semester
Writing Seminar is a course focusing on a specific topic while emphasizing writing practice and instruction, potentially taught by any member of the College faculty. Because this is primarily a course
in writing, reading assignments will be briefer than in traditional topic courses, and students will prove their understanding of the subject matter through writing compositions rather than taking examinations.
