- Immigration history
0.5 Credit Level 2 NCAA
This course will follow a chronological overview of U.S. immigrant History as well as thematic sections to cover significant and current issues. U.S. immigrant history is as much about exclusion as it is about inclusion. One goal of the course is to provide historical context to debates about citizenship, immigration reform, and integration. The other goal of the course is for students to explore their own family’s immigrant history. Students will hone their critical thinking, reading and writing skills through student centered activities. By the end of this course, students will gain a greater understanding of both immigration history and America’s national narrative.
