HIST 298 - Making History

In this half-credit experiential course, we will focus on an issue that is currently moving through the legislative process.  We will research the issue and then create and implement a campaign of advocacy to influence the legislation.  We’ll work with interest groups, state and federal representatives and the public as we raise awareness and lobby for our goals.  Issues will vary depending on the semester but may involve environmental, labor, equity/anti-racism, LGBTQ, or other issues of interest.  In this course, we will apply the skills taught in history classes (research, writing, public speaking) to do the kind of real-life research, information sharing and public relations work that you are likely to encounter in your careers.
