In British and US History & Culture, students learn about key developments in British and US history and culture. The course will offer a broad overview of British and US history and culture and will focus on the causes and consequences of major turning-points as well as on the inter-relations between economic, political, social and cultural developments. Students will gain an understanding of a number of long-term themes in British and American history, including the emergence of national identities in Britain, the evolution of the British parliament, the rise and decline of the British Empire, as well as concepts of republic, liberty and democracy in the US, westward expansion and state vs. federal rights, and the global expansion of the US.
