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 explore core themes in women's history, using international and comparative approaches to cast light on the similar experiences of women in different times and places.  Through class discussions and readings, students will be encouraged to examine the activities of American women as part of a worldwide movement for political, economic, and social equality.   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. Are American women better off than most other women in the
world?
