My Classes

HIST 220:
Interpretations in History:

    Students in HIST 220 will get an intensive introduction to the practice and study of history in a seminar setting. Students will read and discuss many works of scholarship which take different approaches to the same set of historical issues and/or events. Through detailed and sustained class discussion and individual analysis of several historical works dealing with the same general field, students will gain better analytic skills and an understanding of the variety of historical interpretations possible for a given topic. Prerequisites: 9 hours of college-level history credit, at least 3 hours of which must be at Geneseo; or junior standing. Multiple sections offered every fall & spring semester

HIST 240:
