HST 101 - Introduction to History: Democracy in America

1 course unit
When the French aristocrat Alexis deTocqueville visited the United States in the 1830s he was impressed by the degree of democracy he observed.  For most modern-day Americans, however, democracy is something we too often take for granted.  This course, which broadly examines American history from colonial times to the present, explores the establishment and growth of democracy in America, as well as the significant threats it sometimes faced.  Topics include colonial demography, forms of government, slavery, social classes and economic democracy, and wartime propaganda.
Meets general academic requirement HU.
