See the Oregon State University course catalogue for current offerings.


Courses @ OSU:

I teach courses in the history of medicine, the history of science, world history, European history, and the theory and methods of historical research. These are offered at various times throughout the year, and each year’s schedule is slightly different; some, like HST 310, I teach multiple times a year, others, like HST 407 I teach every couple of years. Check the link to the OSU Catalogue above for the latest offerings.
