Course Description

What does it mean to become a citizen of the United States?  What benefits and rights are enjoyed by citizens?  What are the responsibilities of citizenship?  These questions, and many others, will be answered in this preparatory course of how to take the U.S. Citizenship Test. 

 

This course will prepare you to take each section of the U.S. Citizenship Test and it will cover topics such as Civics, the U.S. Government, History, Geography, Reading, and Writing.  It will also cover tips on how to study for the test and how to most effectively prepare yourself for the test.

 

A citizen is an important part of any country or nation.  Unlike an alien, which is the opposite of a citizen, a citizen is free to make choices such as electing the people who govern, such as the president of the United States.  Just as it is beneficial to become a partner in a business, you should think of being a citizen as being a partner of the United States government – being a partner in the government's business. American citizenship comes with many benefits, rights, and privileges, and this course will serve as your guide to achieving this important feat.
