HH200 / HH300 - Historian's Craft / Research in History

Two of the required History Major seminars. HH300 builds on the skills introduced in HH200.

About this Guide

The resources and information within this research guide should help you to research your chosen topic / area of historical study as required for HH300.


"In this second of three required History Major seminars, 2/C students, building on the skills introduced in HH200, now choose their own independent topic and produce a 15-page research project proposal/paper. The proposal must propose a question/opportunity to contribute to historical knowledge based on analysis of the relevant secondary literature. The proposal also must show the project to be achievable by specifying an appropriate methodology and identifying the primary sources necessary to address the question/opportunity. Students are encouraged to further develop and complete their projects during 1/C year by enrolling in HH400B: Capstone Seminar: Research Essay."
