United States History, Semester 2

United States History, Semester 2 builds upon concepts developed in previous studies of U.S. History. Students are expected to identify and review significant events, persons, and movements in the early development of the nation. The course then gives major emphasis to the interaction of key events, people, and political, economic, social, and cultural influences in national developments from the late nineteenth century through the present. Students are expected to trace and analyze chronological periods and examine the significant themes and concepts in U.S. History. They will develop historical thinking and research skills and use primary and secondary sources to explore topical issues and to understand the cause for changes in the nation over time.

Does history repeat itself? In United States History through Global Campus, students will examine parallels from the past to determine its influences on the present day. Students should expect to spend 6-8 hours per week, and will discover important events from World War II, the Cold War, Vietnam, and today.
