Hist222-005 United States History and Constitutions from 1865
Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 12:20 - 1:10AM
Boyden Hall BDN216
This course examines the development of the nation from the age of
Reconstruction to the present. It emphasizes the economic, political, intellectual
and social maturing of the United States.
This is a lot of information to cover, but
it is very useful for understanding the world in which we live.
As the course
comes closer to the present, the potential for being overwhelmed increases. The
textbook for this class is the best and briefest available on the subject, but there
is still a lot of information for students to absorb.
Be prepared to read, work,
research, think, and take personal responsibility for doing all of these.
