Course Description

Lectures, readings, videos, maps, and photos are used to provide students with a survey of US history from Reconstruction to 2000. As such, students will study significant aspects of the nation's political, economic, cultural, and diplomatic history and will be challenged to understand the why, how, and so what of this history. Students begin with learning about what happened and then proceed to questions of causality and consequence. Assigned reading includes a concise edition textbook, a collection of primary sources and historical essays, and 2 or 3 other books. Grading is based on two mid-term exams and one final exam.
