Dual Credit* United States History
The Dual Credit United States History course begins briefly with the earliest recorded historical accounts of the North America Continent.

The course concludes with an examination of current social issues and their historical roots.
*(Non-Dual Credit United States History may be elected. Reading assignments are reduced, and assessments (both length and content) are adjusted to an appropriate high school level course, rather than a college level course.)
