HIST 496 - Independent Study
Credits: One (1)
Independent study is designed for students who would like to pursue an historical research project or topic which is not covered by an existing history department course. Students must contact the program director of the history department in order to coordinate their individual interests and goals for the course. The independent study may take two forms:
1. Directed Readings in History: The Instructor of Record for the independent study will provide the student will a reading list and coordinate meeting times to discuss the readings. This path will culminate in the student’s production of an historiography paper.
2. Directed Research in History: The Instructor of Record will coordinate with the student to iden-tify an original research project in primary sources; compose a research prospectus, and produce a paper based on their original research. It is recommended for the student to have completed coursework in the field of study prior to selecting this option.
