Section Information for Fall 2020
This course is the capstone of the History major. Students are required to produce a substantial research paper based on their reading of primary and secondary sources focused on the ongoing legacy of our University’s namesake, George Mason, to the region and our nation. As such, the course is broadly defined to allow students to select topics from the colonial era through the modern era. Students may focus on local history, political or military topics of their choice or on subjects relating to women, slavery, education, religion, or culture more generally. After completing some readings about George Mason and the generation of the “Founders,” students, with the assistance of the instructor, will focus their attention on the various stages of researching and writing the research paper.
HIST 499 DL2 is a distance education section that meets synchronously. Students should expect to be online on the day and time scheduled.
