Course summary

**Overview**Understanding the history of the world’s foremost superpower at this fascinating moment of crisis and change is more essential than ever.  On this four-year course, which includes a year abroad, you’ll explore America’s development from a colony into a world superpower. You’ll follow the American story from the Revolution through the years of slavery and Civil War, the conquest and settlement of the West, the development of modern society, to Cold War and global influence today. The course helps you explore how the United States has projected power and ways this has seen protest and dissent, at home and abroad. You’ll explore Native American history, the world of enslaved communities, the struggles of civil rights activists, the American political and legal systems, and U.S. foreign relations. By the end of your degree, you’ll know the history of America in depth and have a keen understanding of the way the modern world has been shaped by this nation.  **About This Course**You’ll develop your skills as a historian through comprehensive study of one of the most intriguing and influential nations in the world.  You’ll have the chance to study with internationally renowned academics working in Native American, African American, gender, legal, political, and foreign relations and international history. You’ll gain a detailed knowledge of the founding of the American nation, Indigenous history and culture, the workings of the U.S. government and legal system, Black freedom struggles, the Cold War, and America’s role in the world.  You’ll also gain first-hand experience by spending your third year in the U.S. before returning to UEA to complete your degree in your fourth year. You could also add a comparative dimension to your understanding by studying in Canada, or spending one semester of your year abroad in Australia, New Zealand, or Hong Kong and the other semester in the U.S.  Whichever path you choose through your studies, this degree will provide you with a thorough understanding of how America has shaped and been shaped by the world around us. You’ll learn about the relationship between culture and politics, while gaining an in-depth knowledge of the forces that transform societies and forge nations.
