History 200gm: The American Experience

HIST 200gm explores American history and culture from pre-European contact native civilizations to the nation's present dimensions as a modem pluralistic society. The factual, interpretative, and analytic emphases given to key episodes, personalities, ideas, culture, and social forces in the life of the nation are designed as a foundation for further study. At base we hope to provide students with a useful perspective on the nation's complex and rich past—a central feature of any solid liberal arts education, and, with the family history project, a historical perspective on each student's personal past.
