Syllabus

The US module examines the history of the United States by looking at the origins, development and evolution of its political system. By adopting a strongly thematic approach, the module aims to provide from the outset the perspectives to understand the country as it seeks a new mission and a new understanding of itself and of its role in the global community. In general terms, each number is equivalent to one period.
