HIST 242 - The United States in the American Century


Prerequisites: HIST 100  or consent of instructor
Requirement Fulfillment: Fulfills a course requirement in the History Core Concentration.
This course will explore the political, economic, and cultural development of the United States from the First World War to the present. Use of primary and secondary material will be essential to a more in depth understanding of the paradoxical nature of twentieth and twenty-first century technological advances, which resulted in material affluence and a thriving middle class. Conversely, industrial innovation led to poverty and a disparate standard of living for many. Significant too is America’s growing global participation, from its trade partnerships to its military presence in the First and Second World Wars.
