HIST 100-028: History of Western Civilizatin
(Spring 2011)

10:30 AM to 11:20 AM MWF

Section Information for Spring 2011

“Modern man is just ancient man with way better electronics.” An oversimplification? Probably. But the point that we, as a civilization and humankind, are connected to those civilizations and people that came before us is worth remembering. The United States did not simply invent itself. This country, city, and indeed George Mason University are all products of Western Civilization. During this semester, we will explore our past and attempt to uncover and understand how civilizations developed and evolved.

Satisfies the general education requirement in Western civilization/world history.
