Online Course: The Rooseveltian Century

Who were Franklin, Eleanor, and Theodore Roosevelt? What values did the three Roosevelts stand for? How did these two presidents and one first lady influence the world we live in?

The RIAS, with support from Leiden University, has created an online course, freely available via the Coursera platform. The course explores twentieth century US history in an innovative way through these three unique leaders.
