by University of Virginia

This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.

Course Description

Follow the Class Discussion Board on Twitter @JFKclass

When John F. Kennedy entered the presidential limousine at Love Field in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963, he began his ride into history. That journey continues even today and we call it the Kennedy legacy. This course explores the Presidency, assassination, and lasting legacy of President John F. Kennedy. Students learn how JFK’s life, administration, and tragic death have influenced the general public, the media, and each of the nine U.S. presidents who followed.

Identifying John F. Kennedy's legacy and influence helps understand many of the vexing problems that developed over the last half century as well as many of the challenges that confront us even today. November 22, 1963 was so powerful a moment that in the fifty+ years since the assassination, every U.S. President that followed JFK has used Kennedy’s words and actions in an effort to craft their own political image. Why does Kennedy’s influence persist, and will it continue? What are the effects? We’ll address these questions and more as we explore The Kennedy Half Century.

very informative

a bit too short for each video


Why is iMovie bundled into this program? Is this miscatorized or a deliberate attempt to make cash?

In what way would I need iMovie to enjoy this course?


Learned so much in a short period about Kennedy before and during presidency, and his influence on all presidents since then. Dr. Sabato is a great storyteller and explains the facts in a way that is understandable and won't bog you down. I highly recommend it.
