Instructor Class Description

Time Schedule:

Linda L Nash
HSTAA 531
Seattle Campus

American History: Twentieth Century

Class description

This is the first quarter of a two-quarter research seminar in 20th Century US history. (Actually it should be HSTAA 532-33, but I numbered it wrong. So students will take HSTAA 531 this quarter and HSTAA 532 next quarter; both quarters are required.) Students will pursue their own research on any topic in 20th Century US History, culminating in a seminar paper to be presented at the end of spring quarter. The assigned reading for the course will be minimal.

Student learning goals

General method of instruction

Class assignments and grading

Students will receive an "X" at the end of winter quarter. A grade for both quarters will be issued at the end of spring quarter, based primarily on the final paper.


The information above is intended to be helpful in choosing courses. Because the instructor may further develop his/her plans for this course, its characteristics are subject to change without notice. In most cases, the official course syllabus will be distributed on the first day of class.
