HTY 315 - The American West

3 credits
This course will introduce students to the history of the "Wild West" from the mid-nineteenth to the early twentieth centuries. In addition to the more traditional voices of cowboys, miners, pioneers, outlaws and lawmen, this course will include the perspectives of diverse populations and people that are often relegated to the margins of history books such as Native Americans, Mexican Americans, African Americans, Chinese immigrants, and women. Including the experiences of these often-ignored historical figures provides a more balanced and accurate view of the American West during this period.
