HTY 339 - Readings in History

3 credits
Prerequisite(s): Junior standing or permission of instructor
Students will read intensively about some major themes and events of American history and politics. The course is arranged chronologically, divided equally between the 18th and 19th centuries and the 20th century. In addition to discussing the events and ideas of the past, the course focuses on how historians actually do their research and convey their findings to the public. Students will analyze evidence and sources, historical debates, historical interpretation and arguments, and documentation of evidence. This course serves as a preparation for the Senior Seminar, and students are strongly encouraged to take it first.
