Section Information for Spring 2018
This course will combine readings, lecture, documentary films, and discussions. Students will learn about the historical and cultural antecedents of the "American War" in South Vietnam; the origins of American intervention in Southeast Asia; the major strategies and events of the Vietnam War; the conclusion of the Vietnam War; and some of its legacies. In doing so, they will develop understanding of global patterns and processes and their interaction with society; demonstrate understanding of the interconnectedness, difference, and diversity of a global society; and apply awareness of global issues to a consideration of individual or collective responsibilities within a global society. We will achieve these objectives by examining historical events and issues from a variety of perspectives. Skills developed in the course include formal and informal writing, textual analysis, public speaking, and critical thinking.
Satisfies the general education requirement in global understanding.
