American Diversity
3 Credit Hours
What does it mean to be American? The Declaration of Independence states our inalienable rights as life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, but do we really know what this means? Does this concept of rights apply to all Americans? This course will emphasize the American quest for common ground by investigating our cultural roots through history and literature. Students will examine the varied American immigration experiences to find our common bonds. Students will complete a service learning component.
