Capstone: Senior Seminar

Senior Seminar is a capstone experience aimed at drawing on insights from the student’s previous courses and applying those insights to the production of a polished and sophisticated independent research project and presentation.

The best thing about the history program at Truman is the extremely close relationships that the professors in the History Department have with their students. I have had several professors for multiple classes, and while they are always there to challenge and advise us academically, they also love to be a part of their students’ lives in other ways. I have had professors make the class food for finals, tell us about what has been going on in their lives, and I’ve even been to a professor’s house for dinner.
