HSTR 274 - World History

4 Credit(s) (CD)
This class examines the history of the world. Obviously, it is impossible to outline the history of the world in a block, nevertheless we will concentrate on the history of the Middle East and Africa. Hence, we will ask and answer specific questions of numerous regional histories that hope-fully will give us tools that will allow us to study any aspect of human history on our own yet, at the same time, expose students to the cultural diversity that exists on the globe. The expected outcome for students at the conclusion of this class will be: 1) the ability to answer questions such as how historians have interpreted the past, and how they investigated “alien” civilizations; 2) the ability to know how and why civilizations developed and changed over time; 3) the ability to know how civilizations interact; and 4) the ability to understand, appreciate, and communicate historical dynamics that students have gleaned from independent exploration and research. Students will be assessed on their ability to write short critical papers, answer essay questions that demonstrate analytical thinking, and on an ability to communicate in a scholarly manner.
