From the 17th century, the issue of race has been apparent in the American dialogue. The history of those of Native-American, African-American, Asian-American and Hispanic-American descent has been greatly neglected in the study of U.S. history. The “master narrative” has placed emphasis on the contributions of white Americans to the nation, while those of color have been relegated to the back seat. This course is intended to make American history a multiracial history and to present students with a new, more inclusive dialogue about our national past.

Student Learning Outcomes of the Course:
  1. Knowledge of a basic narrative of American history
  2. Knowledge of common institutions in American society
