Introduction to American Studies
This course addresses three important topics in the history of the United States. Avoiding a survey approach, students will be given the opportunity to read in detail and to acquire more specific knowledge of the three selected topics. During this course students will also be introduced to the wide-range of materials used in American Studies, including primary documents, historical monographs, novels, autobiographies, essay collections and films. Students will also learn to develop their skills in critical analysis, argumentation (oral and written) research (individual and group) and good writing.
