History 481 (Hi 81) History Research Seminar

Description of the Course: This course teaches students the process for writing a 25-page research paper from finding a topic to publicly presenting the research. Each student will choose a topic in American history, locate primary and secondary sources, construct and support an argument, improve their writing ability, and defend their argument verbally in front of their peers. This is a crucial class for anyone thinking about going to graduate or professional school, but is also useful for anyone trying to improve their writing or their ability to make a clear and thoughtful argument. Students who sign up for this course must have working e-mail accounts so the professor can contact them THIS SEMESTER. Students will be most successful in this course if they seriously think about their topic over the summer, so they can start the fall semester with some work already done.

Class Meeting Time: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11:30 AM-12:45 PM

This course is taught by: Professor Beth Salerno
