Hispanic Culture: Past, Present and Future
Course #: EDUC_716I
Semester Credits: 3
Would you like to learn more about the fastest-growing population in the United States? This comprehensive course provides great insight into the many facets of the Hispanic Culture in order for you to better relate to these students, their families, and communities. Through a thematic, rather than an encyclopedic approach, gain an understanding and appreciation of the sociological, economic, political, historical, and religious facets of the dynamic Hispanic Culture. Take a fascinating journey exploring the past and present of thirty-three countries of Latin America and the Caribbean and learn how all of this relates to the present and future of the United States.
From Mexico to Tierra del Fuego, and from Cuba to Trinidad and Tobago, beginning with the legacies of the European conquerors, Dr. Winn examines a full spectrum of subject matter. This includes ones concerning: national identity, economic development, religious matters, race relations, diplomatic matters, cultural issues, illegal activity, immigration, and the treatment of women.
This topical course offers an accurate, balanced, and wide-ranging overview of the Hispanic Culture, which by 2050, if current trends continue, may comprise one-quarter of the U.S. population. Whether you are a teacher, administrator, counselor, or educational consultant, you will be anxious to put this relevant information into practice within your classroom, subject area, and/or school.
