The Pacific Northwest forms the major lens through which students will engage with regional and United States history. Working with readings, film, and primary documents, students will research and inquire how liberty and justice have been interpreted and applied in historical settings. Using a multicultural approach at intersections of class, race, and gender, we will engage social, environmental and economic histories, exploring how work, identity and community inform the experiences of people and the changing environment from 1750-present.

This course is also designed to meet criteria for Masters in Teaching program, and to complement and in-part, overlap with the Pacific Northwest Weather and Climate course offered by Sara Rose.

This offering will prepare you for careers and advanced study in: History; Social Studies; Cultural Studies; Gender Studies; K-12 Education; Public Service; State Government;
