Course Content

This course will intersect History, Sociology, and Political Science to describe and analyze social movements and change within the context of American history, particularly during the twentieth century. The course will examine how some Americans have chosen to modify the political, economic, and social rules that have governed their lives by organizing and acting consciously to promote or resist change. Specific movements, individuals, ideologies, and responses will be investigated, as well as the historical conditions and events which contributed to them.
