A basic introduction to historical thinking and method through small-course seminar experience. Topics vary from term to term; however, no matter what the topic, students can expect to spend a great deal of time learning to think critically about historical questions and to write well. As such, the Freshman seminar should serve as an introduction to upper-level course work in history and related fields of study.
