2020 Courses

  • Summer Session 2020 courses will be added throughout the winter.

Course description

This course is only offered in the Summer Session.

The West and its relations with the rest of the world are central topics today, but just what is the West and what is its history? This course surveys the history of the West from remote antiquity to the 16th century. We will consider developments in technology, economy, politics, religious institutions and faiths, cultural media and social ideals. Together, these themes add up to civilization in the west. We will acquaint ourselves with these dimensions of the past while seeking to acquire the basic skills professional historians use to learn about this past.

Students will be required to attend a discussion session.
