U.S. History Since 1877 by OpenBUCS

Course Description

Trace the historical development of our modern national institutions and social and economic structures. Learn how enormous economic and social changes in the late 19th century from industrialization and urbanization led to massive upheaval in American society and laid the foundations for modern America.

This free, online college class will familiarize students with the historical development of the United States from Reconstruction to the present (or thereabout). We will examine social, political, and economic change in the Americas in order to understand better the emergence of the United States as a world power and contemporary issues confronting the United States. The course has three interrelated goals:
to acquaint the student with the main events and themes of the history of the United States from the 1877 to the present
to cultivate analytical thought and develop dialogue among students
to build the skills necessary for clear written communication about the historical development of our modern national institutions and social and economic structures
