HIST 429F: SPECIAL TOPICS IN HISTORY: MAC TO MILLENNIUM:

HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND

Through an extensive review of primary documents and secondary literature,
lectures, and guest presentations, students will gain an overview of the
history of the University of Maryland, from its founding as the Maryland
Agricultural College in 1856 to the present day. This class will frequently
require you to visit the University of Maryland Archives in Hornbake Library
to review primary sources or to examine sources online that the Archives has
digitized and is heavily research-based.

The majority of the class sessions will consist of two parts. The instructors
will lecture and lead discussion on the assigned topic for the week and the
required readings during the first half of the class. The second portion of
most weekly sessions will feature a guest speaker who will present his/her
perspective on the assigned topic for the week; speakers will include Vice
President for Student Affairs Linda Clement, Athletic Director Kevin
Anderson, former Chancellor of the University System of Maryland William
“Brit” Kirwan, and the mother of Len Bias.

Assignments consist of:
 Poster creation and presentation—30% Students will work in groups to
create a poster exploring an event or theme in university history which will
be presented in class and displayed on Maryland Day.

 Historical item analysis assignment—15%. Each student will be assigned
an item from the University Archives’ collections to analyze by responding
to a series of questions and preparing a brief entry for the Archives’
Terrapin Tales blog.

 Year in the Life of Maryland—35%. The final paper (10-12 pages) will
consist of a series of letters written from the perspective of a senior
student in an assigned academic year. Research into the events of that
academic year will shape the content of the letters.

The remainder of the grade for the class will consist of points awarded for
class participation and attendance and successful completion of weekly
reading assignments.
