Section Information for Spring 2018
Given the troubled times in which we live, it’s natural to wonder: Why is the world so divided? What are the roots of the challenges we face today? Is there anything we can learn the past's many struggles, as we try to find a way forward?
In this course we will explore the long, complex history of the Western world—its personalities, its empires, kingdoms and nations, its ideas and innovations, its many faith traditions, as well as its intimate connections with neighbors near and far. Because the West didn’t emerge from a vacuum, it was constantly influencing, and influenced by, the rest of the world. Together we will explore the personalities, ideas, expressions of faith, and the political movements that have made the West such a vital part of the world today. You will have a valuable opportunity to take a deep dive into history and learn the vital importance of history in our daily lives.
Satisfies the general education requirement in Western civilization/world history.
