Student Research Opportunities

As a history student, it’s essential that you learn how to conduct high-level research. Excellent research enables you to support your findings...and to bring them to life through papers, exhibits and presentations. That’s why one of our top priorities is to train our history students in the latest and most effective research techniques.

Beginning your first year, you will work closely with the faculty in the history department to:

Senior Research Seminar

During this course, particular attention is paid to:
