Learner Outcomes: 

Upon successful completion of the learning experience, students will be able to: demonstrate knowledge of the key events, people, institutions, and chronology of a diverse American nation; recognize the cultural, economic, diplomatic, and military relations between the United States and the rest of the world; distinguish the role of individuals—the famous and not-so-famous—in shaping American history; and engage with the contested meanings of equality over the course of American history.


The fabric of American history is distinguished by many major threads—territorial growth and expansion, the rise of the middle class, generations of technological innovation and economic development, and ongoing U.S. engagement with the wider world. This course incorporates these traditional narratives into a new and fresh interpretation of American history, one that includes the stories of diverse groups of people, explores expanding notions of American identity, and employs a rich mix of history and analysis. Courses are taught throughout the year in eight periods. See the course calendar for exact dates.

Credit recommendation: 

In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category, 3 semester hours in History (9/22).
