Dual Enrollment College U.S. History

This is a two-semester dual enrollment course offered through NOVA. Students who successfully complete this course earn six college credits in History. This course surveys United States history from its beginnings to the present. HIS 121 begins in the pre-Columbian period and ends with the Reconstruction period. HIS-I22 begins with the Gilded Age and ends in the present. Students use college-level texts and historical documents to study the themes, events and ideas that have shaped the history of the United States. Emphasis is placed on college-level reading and writing assignments including essays and research papers, and the skills needed for the AP United States History Exam. Students need a C or better at the end of the first semester to enroll in the second-semester course. Students who do not have a C or better will be moved to a non-college level-course.
