Each semester, the History Department offers faculty-led Skills Workshops for students.  The schedule of workshops begins the second week of Fall and Spring semesters.  The first, in Week 2 of the semester, focuses on “Prep for Success,” behavioral strategies for achieving your academic goals. Workshops on Note-taking (Week 3),  ​Reading Analytically (Week 4)​, and Essay Writing (Week 5) highlight specific skills. The Essay Writing workshop  ​supports  midterm essay writing.
