Section Information for Spring 2018

In HIST 125 we explore the sweeping historical changes that created today's modern world. Beginning around 1200, we trace key processes reshaping the politics, cultures, and economies of various regions. While Europe and the United States are part of our focus, we primarily consider Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. Each of these geographic regions became enmeshed in a global system affected by far-reaching religious transformations, mercantile activity, indus­trial growth, and imperialism/ colonialism. By semester’s end, students should grasp the major trends underlying seven centuries of world history.

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