Writing Intensive Courses for Spring 2014

The University requires that all students successfully complete a writing intensive course.  All History majors, including those also concentrating in Secondary Education, must take a Writing Intensive Course in the History Department.

Beginning in Fall 2013, the Department will offer one course--Writing and Methods for Majors--that will serve as the Writing Intensive Course for the Department.  In Fall 2013 & Spring 2014 it will be a History 392.  Once it has made its way through the University's formal approval process, it will be History 275.

The focus of all sections of the course will be writing assignments that will help prepare students to succeed in the major.  All sections will have a similar syllabus.  Each instructor, however, will use content drawn from his or her field of specialization to provide the primary and secondary sources for the course.  No sections of the course will assume any previous knowledge of the themes addressed.

For Spring 2014, the Department will offer three Writing Intensive Courses:

1.  Prof. Charles Steinwedel will offer History 392, section 01, on Mondays & Wednesdays from 2-3:15 (CRN 27795). Topic: "Stalinism & the Soviet Union in the 1930s."

2.  Prof. Steinwedel will also offer History 392, section 7 on Mondays from 7:05-9:45pm (CRN 27801). Topic: "Stalinism & the Soviet Union in the 1930s."

3.  Prof. Christina Bueno will offer History 392, section 05, on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 10:50am-12:05pm (CRN 27799). Topic: "The Cuban Revolution."

Students are strongly encouraged to enroll in the course as soon as possible after declaring the major.

Professor Rosa

We are very sad to announce the passing of Professor Susan Rosa after a long illness.  Dr. Rosa was a dedicated professor and intellectual.  We in the History Department, along with many friends and students from across the university, will miss her greatly.

Dr. Rosa was recently granted Professor Emeritus status by the University.

Thinking about majoring in History?

History Department Frequently Asked Questions:

1) How do I declare history as my major?Stop by the History Department Office (LWH 4086) and fill out a “Declaration of Major” form.

2) How can I see a History Advisor?
First fill out a declaration of major form in the History Department office. At that time you will be assigned a History Advisor. You should then get in touch with your advisor to schedule an appointment, or stop by his or her office during office hours. Please bring your unofficial transcripts and evaluation of transfer credits (if you are transferring courses in from another institution)

3) What if I’m not ready to declare a major: I just want to know more about the program and requirements?You can find basic information about the History program in the NEIU Catalog (available for free in Beck’s Bookstore), and on the History Department website:

3) What courses are required?Again – see the History section in the Catalog. Please note: the catalog is not the same as the schedule of classes. The catalog outlines each major, minor, and graduate program with its requirements.

4) I’m also doing Secondary Ed…what do I do?Fill out a “Declaration of Major” form for History. You will be assigned a History advisor for your history program requirements. Go to the Secondary Ed department for Ed program requirements & advising.
