College of Arts and Sciences Offers Summer Coursework

Over 200+ summer and online courses will be offered this summer from A&S.

PS 101: American History with Dr. Richard Waterman

Explore the inner workings of the American political system just before the 2012 election starts heating up in the Fall. This course is an appropriate first step on the path toward earning a Major or Minor in Political Science and, for students pursuing degrees at the University of Kentucky, also fulfills the U.S. citizenship requirement of UKCore. Taking it in Summer 2012 will give students the background (and at UK a specific prerequisite) needed to enroll in Fall courses that tap into the election-year excitement, such as those on campaigns & elections, on political parties, or on the presidency. Bulletin description: "A survey of national government and the political process in the United States, with emphasis on the Constitution, the President, Congress, and the judicial system."

HIS 109: History of the U.S. Since 1877

This course examines American history from 1877 to the present: political, economic, and social—Gilded Age, Progressive Era, New Deal, Age of Affluence and of Limits, Great Society and two Great Wars. You will find how much, how little, America has lived up to its ideals: how it grew from a nation of farms and cotton mills to an industrial giant; how it became a world power and what problems this created. Because we will cover over 130 years of American history, we will focus our coverage on moments in the American past where the rights of citizens contracted or expanded. This question of national belonging will serve as a unifying theme for the course. Who counts as an American citizen and when? How do these questions of the contested nature of citizenship reflect more broadly on our nation's past? On our future? Students will engage in this study using a number of methods: analyzing primary documents, reading the work of historians, listening to lectures, engaging in discussion board, participating in simulations, and preparing a multi-media presentation of their own design.
