You will learn the same curriculum as our on-campus students

Students will look beyond the textbooks to consider the presence of the past in everyday life and the public sector. Students will explore the many non-academic sources that shape Americans' understanding of history, from oral traditions and public memorials to museums and documentaries. Readings and assignments will also take a critical look at issues of public "memory" in the United States. Why are certain histories preserved while others are forgotten? Why is it that the past can be so controversial? This is a course for anyone interested in a history-related career or anyone intrigued by the lessons the past has to teach us today.
