Contemporary History

Think history is dry, dull, and boring? Think again. This course focuses on the seven decades of the 1950s through the 2010s. The major events of the decades are covered, but the real essence of the course is taught from the standpoint of pop culture. We delve into each decade, looking at the trends in cars, fashion, music, television, technology, movies, and fads. This takes the course out of the realm of the traditional history curriculum and provides a very contemporary and exciting approach to history.
