Preparation for the BA in History and Military History Capstone seminar begins on day one of a student's program of study. The theories, research methods and analytical skills, and substantive knowledge obtained through their BA curriculum provide the basis for the Senior Seminar. Students are required to develop primary and secondary source materials on their research topic and address the writing requirements as described in the syllabus and classroom assignments. The research proposal must provide a clear description of a question or problem and a proposed method of answering the question or solving the problem. This course should be the LAST course in your program prior to HIST498/MILH498 and should not be taken earlier in your program.
