Fall 2021
Beyond the Dream: Current Black Social Issues
Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3:00-4:15

Examines issues in education, politics, business, economics, social life, and the arts as they relate to developments in the black community since the Civil Rights Era. The African American Community comprises a major community in the United States today and throughout history and is of particular interest to the residents of Chicago's Southland. The Civil Rights Era set the stage for major cultural accomplishments. This course examines and explores those accomplishments in the context of a society that continues to struggle with its racial diversity. Intended for history majors, secondary education majors (particularly those in the social sciences concentration), elementary education majors, early childhood education majors, and other interested undergraduates.


Fall 2021
The United States to 1865
Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10:00-11:15
Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11:30-12:45

Provides a historical examination of the United States from the founding of the colonies through Reconstruction with special emphasis on connections between historical transformations and issues of race, class, gender, religion, nation-building, economic development and modernization, and the sectional conflict. Familiarity with the historical developments in the United States is critical to a nuanced and complex understanding of the United States and it's place in the world today. This is a required course for history majors and fills a requirement for students majoring in elementary, early childhood, and secondary education. This course also meets the Humanities General Education requirement.
