The History 469: Seminar in History, also known as the History Senior Seminar, was originally part of the History Program in the Humanities Division. Students who were majoring in History were required to enroll in the program and complete a final capstone project, a written research paper following a selected topic from the instructor. The program later became part of the College of Liberal Arts and then the College of Arts and Sciences under the division of History.
