Junior Year

Student studying library

Juniors write two research papers about 30-35 pages long, one in each semester. In the fall, juniors enroll in a seminar, History 400, that guides them through the process of historical research and writing. In the spring, students work on their paper under the guidance of a faculty adviser. The junior papers are designed to prepare students to tackle more ambitious topics for their thesis.
