Course Description

Prerequisite: Minimum grade of C in ENGL 115 or satisfactory test score, concurrent enrollment allowed. Welcome to Michigan! This course offers a comprehensive survey of Michigan peoples from the pre-Columbian period to the present. Leading topics include Native American societies, the colonial era and statehood, the Underground Railroad and Michigan in the Civil War, demographic, geographic and cultural transformations as related to the rise of industrialism, and rising challenges in the state's development since the 1950's. Within our survey, we will emphasize various issues concerning society, politics, economics, religion, race and gender. We will ask just what it is which distinguishes Michigan within the U.S. and global communities. Ultimately, we will seek to know more about exactly what it means to be a citizen of the Wolverine State. [Semesters Offered: Fall, Spring]
