Honors Course: HIST 1302 – History II

“America and the World in Film/Print”

As with all US History II courses, this class will address the principal themes of modern US history since 1877.  But US History II:  America and the World will take advantage of the honors format to also examine in detail the role of America in world affairs and, in turn, the influence of the world on life in the United States.  To make sense of such a sweeping view of history, the class will concentrate on four distinct but interrelated periods:  1877-1920, 1920-1945, 1945-1989, & 1989 – Present.
