HIST 3130 - Oral History and Fitchburg State University’s Past
3 cr.3 hr. Offered once every two years beginning spring 2015.
This course is intended as a practical, “hands-on” introduction to oral history. Oral history is the process of interviewing people to record their memories of events that occurred in the past and to analyze the meaning and value of those memories. These skills are applicable to multiple academic and vocational disciplines and non-history majors are encouraged to enroll. Students will use what they learn in the course to make their own concrete contribution to history by working on an oral history of Fitchburg State University. CTW, HIST
