The course is designed to facilitate students’ adjustment to the university learning environment. Students will be assisted in the transition from high school to college-level work and made aware of the support services available to them. The skills necessary for academic success will be discussed and honed as students examine the theme of women in American society.  In addition to looking at how the role of women has changed from the colonial period to the 21st century, this course will also use primary and secondary source materials to determine what factors have shaped the female experience and what issues divide and unite women in America, past and present.
