SOSC 210 - Foundations of American Character


Credit Hours: 3
This course is an exploration of several of the main periods of American history, from the earliest European colonies to the present day, highlighting prominent ideas and disputes which have defined and which still today shape the ‘character’ of the United States. The exploration will primarily be conducted through writings produced by living eyewitness of the evolution of these ideas and disputes; thus, in this class students will read writings by influential-and sometimes forgotten-artists, authors, visionaries, politicians, and other religious, political and cultural leaders from throughout 400 years of American History.
Meets General Education Goal 4: Breadth of Knowledge (Social Science and History).
