HIST 362 - Becoming American (3 credits)


This history course will take a holistic approach to the theme “Becoming American,” a process at times called “Americanization.” We may explore the ideas of American Identity, Regionalism, Immigration and Migration, the American Dream, Citizenship and the Nation, Diversity and Multiculturalism. This course introduces students to the craft and concepts involved in interdisciplinary knowledge production within the Humanities. Students may be exposed to materials used in a multitude of disciplines and will be asked to evaluate and interpret such documents as historical primary sources, memoirs, literary works, films, photographs, artifacts, music, and art.
