HS341  The United States Since the Civil War     (3.00 cr.)

Prerequisite: HS101. Covers nearly a century and a quarter of American life. By examining U.S. social and economic life, as well as its political, diplomatic, and cultural history, the course focuses on what present-day Americans share with their nineteenth-century forebears, how our lives differ from theirs, and why and how the changes occurred. To study these questions and to analyze the continuing conflict of cultures and values within periods and across time, this course has a three-part framework: the development of an urban, industrial society; reaction and reform as a result of the new society; and the concentration of power and its limitations.
