Thanks to Hurricane Irene, we’ll be moving our History and American Studies introductory meeting for 485 students from Monday, 8/29, to Wednesday, 8/31 at 5 pm in Monroe 346.
This meeting is for students in American Studies or History who are enrolled in a 485 senior thesis course for this current Fall semester.
All students who are doing a History or American Studies 485 (senior thesis) should plan on attending a mandatory meeting with Dr. Jeffrey McClurken on Monday, August 29th. The meeting will be held at 5 p.m. in Monroe 346, the new classroom on the 3rd floor of the renovated Monroe Hall.
Syllabi for both HIST485 and AMST485 are now available at the site here (see page links above.)
August is here and we’re looking forward to the coming 2011-12 academic year!
To kick things off, the History and American Studies Department is welcoming 1st-year prospective majors to a picnic next Thursday (8/25). Co-sponsored by History honorary society Phi Alpha Theta, this picnic will provide students with an informal opportunity to meet faculty and student majors while also enjoying an excellent picnic supper at the house of Professor William Crawley (emeritus). First-year prospective majors should already have received an invitation (if you were overlooked, please send a note to department administrator Lisa Patton at lpatton [at] umw [dot] edu.)
In other news, we also have an upcoming meeting for all students who are undertaking their senior theses this fall. Stay tuned for another announcement with full information as well as a link to the current 485 syllabus.
Best wishes for a productive and interesting fall semester!
