Semester Hours: 4

Studying the past matters. This course makes that case by introducing students to basic historical research and methods. It will address the relevance of learning about the past by examining history that provides insight into current events.  Students will find references to history in recent news sources, research the histories, and use their research to contextualize the news.  The course is intended for students who are not history majors but majors may take the course for elective credit.
