Accessing Your Course
Canvas (by Instructure)
Your course is using Canvas. If you are new to Canvas, please visit the
Canvas Basics course space
to become familiar with Canvas prior to the start of your course. No login is required to
access this space.
You will be able to login to Canvas about two weeks prior to the start of your class.
However, your course becomes available as of 1 AM on the official course
Log in to your Canvas course space at
- Username: Your username is the same for every system at Bucks.
- Password: your Bucks Network password (used to log into any Bucks campus computer or to access any Bucks Library online database from off campus.)
If you do not know your Bucks Username, you can retrieve it by using the Find Your Username Form. Enter your Name, Birthday (mm/dd/yyyy) and either your 7 digit student ID number OR your social security number, then click Submit. Your Bucks username will display on the screen.
Note: Students are uploaded to Canvas several times a day. If you registered late, you won't be
able to access Canvas until the next upload takes place.
Purchasing Your Books and Other Course Materials
While you may purchase your books and other course materials from the provider of your choice (using the
ISBN number available through the course's academic department
where applicable to ensure the correct version), both the campus bookstore
and our online bookstore,
guarantee that they stock the correct version for your course.
Approximately 3 weeks prior to the start of the session you can use the link
below to see the list of books that have been selected by your instructor. If you have
any questions about the course materials listed, please contact your instructor or the academic
this link to see the book list for your course.
Other Information about the Course
Welcome to Peoples of America!
This course explores the diversity of people living in the United States. We will discuss the collective experiences of various groups and we will examine the intersections of race/ethnicity, social class, gender, religion, dis/ability and sexual orientation. There will be a focus on structural inequality and the effect it has on individual choices and behaviors.
There are many advantages to taking online courses. You can be anywhere while you take this course, work at any time during the day or night, and you can work and learn at your own pace.
With this being said, your online journey requires self-motivation and self-discipline. You are required to read, review and study the materials at your own pace. Since we do not meet face-to-face, it is important that you communicate with me via email or telephone if have any questions or problems relating to accessing or understanding the course materials, the assignments, and tests.
I look forward to working with you all this semester.
Best, Max Probst
Orientation: There will be orientation information posted on our canvas site to familiarize you with the objectives and requirements of the course.
