Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Making American Selves program was a Core Coordinated Studies program designed by Faculty Brian Price. This program asked students "What does it mean to be an American?" This was a yearlong program spanning the academic year of 1991 to 1992. In Fall Quarter the focus was personal and family identity, in Winter Quarter the focus was shifted to identities in previous eras, and in Spring Quarter the focus moved to the future.
