History Lab (HIS 101/102)

hislab 

The History Lab is a resource provided to assist undergraduate students taking HIS 101 World Civilizations I and HIS 102 World Civilizations II.  The Lab is paid for by student fees.  All lab consultants are advanced history graduate students who have experience with History 101 and 102 courses, and their content and assignments.  The History Lab offers help with note-taking, study skills, exam preparation, and structuring exam answers.  Additionally, lab consultants facilitate historical writing skills, including idea formation, outlining, citations and documentation, document comprehension, creating an argument, and many other skills.  The History Lab is located in room 318 in the Liberal Arts Building (LAB) on the Hattiesburg campus.

Online Students: Students enrolled in online HIS 101 or HIS 102 sections can also use the History Lab's services via SKYPE or the phone.  When making an appointment, please state your need to have an online session. 

Gulf Coast Students: Students enrolled in HIS 101 or HIS 102 sections on the coast campus can also use the History Lab's services.  Contact your HIS 101 or HIS 102 professor to get information about the History Lab on the Coast (location: room 303 Elizabeth Hall).  Coast students can also make arrangements to contact the Hattiesburg Lab via SKYPE or the phone.  When making an appointment, please state your need to have an online or phone session.

To work with a History Lab consultant, an appointment is preferred, but walk-ins are also welcome.
