Students in the social and behavioral sciences department will spend much of their time participating in research that will not only benefit their understanding of history and how humanity understands the world, but will also share their findings at conferences such as the Annual Meeting of the Florida Conference of Historians. Our students will be pushed to explore sources and data yet to be discovered by society. This ultimately helps students gain credentials that will serve them well in graduate school or their chosen careers.
As part of student’s capstone project, history majors research a nuanced historical question. Students will learn how to use library resources, format research papers, and cite effectively during the first semester of their junior year. They also attend a field trip to local libraries to learn more about researching methods. In their last semester, they finish their capstone paper with the opportunity to preserve their work in the Florida College Chatlos Library.
Many of my classes at FC included extensive reading and writing assignments. This was helpful for my transition into law school, but has continued to provide a solid foundation into my career as a transactional attorney. Reading and drafting multiple contracts each day is a little bit easier if you've taken Dr. Crispell's history classes for four years!
