  • Political & Social Hist-U.S.-HIST103-20444

    This course covers the development of American institutions and society from Reconstruction to the present.

Along the way, daily life changed dramatically for all Americans. We will also stress the ways that history is an argument about the meaning of the past. We will join that argument through discussions and our own interpretations of primary sources. We will develop our abilities to express ourelves clearly and persuasively, in speech and writing.

In addition, each student will identify an appropriate subject of their own interest, then research and write about the subject using historical sources.
