    CRN Course Dates Description Instructor Credits Notes Prerequisites
    35681 2019-01-14 to 2019-05-04 Surveys U.S. history from post-Civil War Reconstruction to the present. It examines challenges faced by the nation as it grappled with transformations and international crises that resulted from industrialization, urbanization, immigration, expanded globalization, economic crisis and two world wars. The U.S. emerged from World War II as a super power, but found itself locked in a Cold War struggle against communism that provided the backdrop to the second half of the 20th century. It influenced cultural, social, political and economic changes that continue to shape American life and foreign policy today. This course develops critical thinking and writing skills: introduces the methods, theories and approaches that inform historical interpretations of this era; and provides opportunities to use qualitative and quantitative data– the primary source materials– that historians use to defend their interpretations and arguements.
