The History Graduate Program offers a curriculum development project (HIST 6951, Advanced History Curriculum Development: three or six credits in their major field, or three credits in their major and three credits in their minor). Students arrange curriculum development projects with a sponsoring faculty member. Generally, students are expected to develop and submit a complete course curriculum plan for each three-credit project. Projects need to show evidence of familiarity with the relevant historiographies and primary sources. Students may apply the credits from HIST 6951 to either the major field or the minor field, depending on the project subjects. Curriculum plans must meet minimum criteria established by the History Department in the document "Curriculum Development Guidelines HIST 6951."
