    This course encompasses the study of American History starting with WWI and continuing through the conclusion of WWII. Besides dealing with the two World Wars, the course will also examine the time period between the wars to promote a more meaningful understanding of how WWI im-pacted American society at its conclusion and how subse-quent events of the Interwar years contributed to the dawn of WWII. Likewise, students will also be challenged to un-cover and identify connections between current events and issues and those discussed in class.
