HIST 201H - US History: Beginnings to 1877 - Honors

(3,0) 3 Credits

General Education Course: Humanities-History (GCA)
Prerequisite(s): GPA 3.5 or permission of instructor.
This class surveys American history beginning with its Pre-Columbian origins. It extends to the colonial period and then to the Atlantic World forces that created revolution. The course continues with the tensions inherent in a nation divided by region and vision for the future. It ends with the climax of conflict that was the Civil War, and the Reconstruction in its wake that left unsettled the issue of civil rights. This course places US history in the context of global events. In doing so, it examines the complex ways in which the contours of the American experience have been both shaped by global forces and conversely how the United States has influenced the world. Moreover, the course investigates the expansion and contraction of democracy as part of the longer-term process of global revolutionary movements demanding freedom that began, but not fully realized with its own revolution.
