About

Ideally, majors should take the History Core as freshmen at Boston College. The sophomore year on the History program should include The Study and Writing of History seminar. Junior and Senior years should be used to complete the remaining requirements.

Overview

The Study and Writing of History is a course required for all History majors and open only to History majors from Boston College. Ideally it is taken during the Sophomore year. The course is demanding, requiring a significant commitment of time and energy. But the result is gratifying. You will research and write a major paper based on primary source research.

Program outcomes

The History course is designed to create a common understanding of historical method among our majors. After taking it, they should understand from practical experience:

  • the difference between primary and secondary literature;
  • how to find and evaluate primary sources;
  • how to interpret and synthesize the many different works they read;
  • how to generate a question to guide their research;
  • how to refine the question as they learn more;
  • how to compose an argument and organize a paper; and
  • how to revise their work in response to the questions and criticism of other readers.

Programme Structure

  • History
