Seminar in History
Academic Term and Year
Hamline Plan Letter
Area of Study
Goals: The senior seminar provides a capstone experience in the major, in which students practice and polish previously learned skills and build on previous knowledge and experience to produce a significant research paper. Outstanding students may choose to write a Senior Honors Essay rather than take the Senior Seminar. The Honors option is open to students whose proposal for a significant research paper based on primary source materials is approved by the History Department faculty in the spring of the junior year. Honors students carry out research and write the essay under the direction of a faculty advisor and defend it before a committee in spring of the senior year. Content: Varies from year to year. Recent examples: Biography as History; Diplomatic History; Environmental History; Rise and Fall of Radical Right. Taught: Annually Prerequisites: Junior or senior standing, three 1000-level HIST courses, three 3000-level HIST courses, and completion of HIST 3010 or 3000. (Seven courses total.) Credits: 4 credits
