Exploring Appalachia at Appalachian: Local History and Culture

Travis Rountree
Day/Time Taught: 
TR 8:00-9:15 am
Course Number: 

This course is designed to provide students with an understanding of Appalachia and how this understanding applies to their lives here at Appalachian State University. The course will satisfy the new General Education Objectives for the First Year Seminar in numerous ways. Students will employ many methods of collecting and interpreting information that will help them to answer questions such as What is Appalachia? and Why is it worth studying? As we answer these questions this class will also discover how Appalachia ties in with the campus of ASU. This class should further help you to become a better reader and writer in your career as a student as well as give you an understanding of the region of Appalachia that you did not have before entering the class.

NOTE: Enrollment restricted to residents of the Black and Gold residential learning community.
