How can a nation founded in slavery and offering equality and opportunity for only some claim to be a land of freedom?

Approaching the history of the United States as one of triumph, tragedy, and, ultimately, paradox, this course tackles these and other questions as it explores how Americans have contended with one another over the meanings of freedom, equality, opportunity, and justice from the founding of their nation to the present.

You will join a class which is studying Rise and Fall of the USA (HISTORY108) as part of an undergraduate degree, but you will not attend tutorials, complete assignments or sit an exam – a no-stress learning opportunity.
