HIST 203 - United States and the World
(3cr) This is a survey of American History from the 1600s to the recent past that emphasizes how the history of the people living in central North America interacted with people throughout the world. Putting American history in a global context includes looking at “domestic” events (such as the American Revolution, Reconstruction, Indian Removal, or “the Sixties”) anew, reexamining larger forces as influencing our history (such as the industrial revolution, European imperialism, the Enlightenment), as well as America’s direct interactions with other people across the globe (such as the World Wars, immigration policy, economic globalization, 9/11). This view of American history from a global context will help students understand how their history fits in with others across the world.
