This research guide contains a vast array of resources to aid history majors
in completing their capstone research project as part of HIST 498.
Senior Seminar is the capstone course for all history majors. In this course, students complete the task of becoming a historian by writing a 13-15 page research paper on a topic of your choosing. Students will draw on their own interests and on the skills and knowledge from previous courses in the major to research, write, and present their final paper.
