SURVEY OF TEXAS HISTORY

This course offers a broad overview of Texas history and culture from pre-history to the present. Intended as foundational instruction, it provides students with the basic knowledge upon which the other courses will build. We embrace that Texas frontier spirit, which is alive and well in Texas: frontiers in science and technology; frontiers in spirit and imagination; frontiers in learning and opportunity. Texans have always believed that if we can dream it, we can build it. Yet the state is changing in ways unimaginable even a decade ago. We do not assert that Texans are better than other people. But we do proclaim, in voices loud and clear, that we are different than other people. We study, teach, explore, explain, and celebrate those differences. While embracing the latest technologies and with an eye fixed firmly on the future, we have created a place where the past can breathe.
