Grant Summary

$325,000 over 36 months to redesign three history courses that fulfill the California State University system’s American Institutions and Ideals requirement: HIST 2201, and HIST 2202, and HIST 3340. These courses will be transformed from conventional lecture-based history and government surveys into seminar-style courses that will give students the opportunity to read common sets of core texts that have shaped the American political experiment. Cal Poly Pomona (CCP) will also launch a new minor in Global Justice, which will serve as its foundation for the grant-supported sections of HIST 2201/2202/3340 and provide a pathway through upper-level general education courses at CCP.
