In your first year, the aim of this course is to explore some of the fundamental aspects of American civilization. We will be looking at the US from various angles and through different disciplines: history, sociology and politics. The course broadly covers the era from the origins (17th century) to the end of the Second World War. It will also explore the foundations of American civilization, including politics, institutions, and the American people, to give you an opportunity to learn more about American life and culture.
