This is a course taken as part of the signature work done by students at the end of their degree program: the senior thesis, internship, or student teaching in History. As part of the course, students will connect their previous learning in the Archway Curriculum, both in their liberal arts and History majors, with the signature work with which they are engaged as seniors. As part of the course, they will explore through their Archway Curriculum e-Portfolio (ACeP) their earlier work, connect the skills and ideas of that earlier work to their current signature work, engage in discourse with other students about themes relevant to their work, and prepare for the next stage of their career beyond college.
Pre or corequisite(s): HIST 3650/HIST 4650 Topics in Nebraska History or HIST 4970 History Internship or HIST 4980 Introduction to Senior Thesis and permission of department chair.
