HIST 2112H - U.S. History II Honors

The Honors Survey of U.S. History II offers an enriched study of the history of the United States from 1877 to present. Students read original analytical texts that cover national events spanning from Post-Reconstruction to the global era. Emphasis is placed on the social, cultural, political, and domestic upheaval of the U.S. and its diplomatic emergence as a world power. This honors class offers a smaller, seminar-oriented section wherein students receive more individualized attention from faculty members and enjoy an enhanced learning environment with other gifted students. The honors classroom allows for greater development of scholarly potential through the rich exchange of ideas and specialized assignments. Pre-requisites: For enrollment in Honors classes, students must have a 3.2 college GPA, or incoming freshmen must show a combined 1100+ SAT (or 24+ ACT) and a 3.5+ high school GPA. Students must have completed any LS requirements.
