Contemporary World Problems: American Dreaming
As a people, we are unique in having a common heritage that we call the “American Dream.” This term, analyze this “dream” to examine whether there has been a shift in our national aspirations - from a set of deeply held ideals, to a checklist of goals or entitlements that cause dissension and unrest. Using short readings, documentary and popular culture films and TV segments, students will discuss the origins and future of this uniquely American belief. We'll also hear from recent immigrants about their perspectives on this subject.
Mature learning classes are for persons aged 55 and older only.
