HIST 125-A03: Introduction to World History
(Summer 2021)

07:00 PM to 10:00 PM STR


Section Information for Summer 2021

In this course we explore the sweeping historical changes that created today’s modern world.  Beginning around 1450, 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.

HIST 125 A03 is a distance education section taught synchronously. Students should expect to meet on the days and times scheduled.
