A survey of the history of America in the 20th century, the course emphasizes the explosive growth of aviation as a major influence upon the economic, military, and societal development of the United States.

The goal of the course is to discuss those personalities and technologies that were significant to the development of American aviation/aerospace and to highlight the interrelationship between aviation/aerospace and the broader context of American political, social, economic, and military history. The student will gain understanding of the history of aviation from differing perspectives and develop critical thinking, writing, discussion and analytical abilities thru class discussion and writing. The course exposes students to how historians write, think, analyze and address problems.

Upon completion of the course, students will be able to do the following:

5. Demonstrate through academic research an understanding of the interrelationship between aviation and the broader context of American political, social, economic, and military history.

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
