Creighton may be the only history department in the country that offers an intensive seminar in Writing for Publication to undergraduate students. Research students have the opportunity to spend a semester preparing their research for publication in undergraduate or professional journals. The seminar culminates in an evening of formal presentations to an audience of faculty, students, administrators, friends, and family.

By the end of the course, students are fully prepared to design, conduct, present, and publish their own research projects. The course provides an outstanding experience for students contemplating graduate or professional school, but students in any field will find value in the analytical, critical thinking, writing, and presentation skills that they develop in the process.
