CLS-181
American Diversity
3 Credit Hours

This course is designed to introduce students to the history and culture of American immigrant groups and majority and minority groups. There is a major focus on the historical and sociological meanings behind relevant concepts such as "American," "cultural diversity," and "inalienable rights" (e.g., life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness). This course will emphasize the American quest for common ground by investigating our sociocultural roots through history, literature, and popular culture. Students will examine the varied American immigration experiences and the history of American majority and minority groups to find our common bonds.
