HI 450 - Topics in Historiography

4.00 credits.
This course provides each student with the opportunity to think critically about the writing of history. It also allows each student to practice his or her communication skills, both verbally and in writing. Rather than reading simply for content, we will spend much of our time analyzing the various approaches to history. We will attempt to understand the assumptions, biases, and interpretive paradigms that underlie each of these approaches. In short, we will focus not on the “what” of history but on the “why” and “how.” *Prerequisite(s): History majors during the senior year. Signature Learning Experience: Capstone Experience.
