HIS 1300 - Introduction to Latin American History

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): Minimum performance standard scores on reading and writing pre-assessment placement tests

Description: This course introduces students to the history of Latin America. It explores relationships among indigenous peoples, Europeans and Africans; the responses of each group to the dynamics of colonial contact; the development and maturation of colonial society; and the ways that Latin Americans have sought to construct stable nation-states and dynamic economies since gaining their independence. Although the course focuses primarily on broader social, economic and political transformations of the last 500 years, it also pays considerable attention to the ways these changes shaped everyday life, and the way people made sense of those changes.

General Studies: Historical, Global Diversity
