The Core Curriculum

Contemporary Civilization Expands (CC A and B)

Event Date: 

The freshman segment of the expanded Contemporary Civilization course, CC-A, focuses on the history of Western civilization from the year 1200 through the present. The essential inquiries from the original CC course remained: How do men make a living? How do they live together? How do they understand their world?  The sophomore segment, Introduction to Contemporary Problems in the United States (or CC-B), emphasized the question of making a living in the United States. Thiswas due in part to the Economics and Government departments abandoning their popular introductory courses in favor of the expanded CC.
