HST 2610 Minnesota History (3 credits)

This course's goal is to help students identify both why and how major events in Minnesota's past occurred by uncovering the means through which economic, political, and cultural forces motivated Minnesotans to act. The students will explore what makes Minnesotan culture distinct from a historical perspective. They will also survey the history of the Minnesota area--its environments, people, and cultures. In addition, this course will expose students to a variety of methods to understand history. The students will explore the local historical society and read primary and secondary sources covering Minnesota's history. [Core Curriculum Goal Area(s) 5 & 7]
