HST205 Historical Tools

[3–0, 3 cr.]

This course introduces the discipline of history and provides students with the necessary historical and academic skills through acquainting them with differ­ent ways of reading, writing, and interpreting historical texts and documents. The core of this course is to enable students to conduct their own historical research. A broad overview of historical methodologies and historiography (‘the history of history’) also shows history’s unique place among the Humanities as well as the Social Sciences.
