History Portfolio

All undergraduate History majors are required to enroll in HIS 4959 in the semester they intend to graduate. This zero-credit hour course guides students with turning in the required portfolio for graduation. This portfolio should contain 8-12 examples (the originals not copies) of graded, written work (research papers, book reviews, essay exams, etc.) from History classes. The portfolios will be used by the History Department in order to assess our program. If you have questions regarding this requirement, please reach out to [email protected].
