The History Lab

The History Lab is a resource center for undergraduate students studying, researching, and writing about the past. It is staffed by experienced graduate students from the Department of History.

Through individual tutoring, the Lab focuses on honing students’ abilities to form topics, conduct research, develop arguments and thesis statements, cite evidence, and write effectively. The Lab is equipped also to support challenges faced by English-language learners.

The History Lab is located in 4255 Humanities. The easiest way to find it is to enter the set of doors on the right as you approach the building through the N. Park Street parking lot. Take the stairs or elevator up to the Fourth Floor and go through the doors on the left and down that hallway. You’ll find the lab just as you round the corner at the end of that hallway.
