Section Information for Summer 2023
This course, which satisfies the Mason Core IT requirement, prepares students to use and understand a wide variety of current and emerging digital technologies—everything from basic office software to more complex services such as databases and digital maps. It explores how technologies can augment the ability to produce, consume, process and communicate information, but also create challenges related to security, source reliability and automation. The course teaches the fundamentals of information technology within the context of a history course rather than as a set of abstract principles or discrete skills tied to particular software packages. No background in history is required. Students will develop an analysis of a race riot in the US since the Civil War.
HIST 390 B01 is an asynchronous online section.
