Description

If you want to get at the roots of the “American Experiment,” HST 101 provides the framework, examining the incubation of our current political and societal values.

You’ll be presented with complex historical issues and asked to analyze all the ramifications of their resolution.

You may be asked questions such as:
• How did Europeans from a medieval culture influence and adapt to the American experience of citizenship?
• What was the political, social, and economic impact of the struggle for American independence?
• How and why did America “sectionalize”?

Democracy, social justice, equality. History really does repeat itself!
