Course Descriptions


    HIS 203 - Interactions: the West in the World I

    The course provides an overview of the important historical, political, cultural, social, and economic movements that tie the development of Europe to the development of the rest of the globe from the origins of civilizations to the brink of European hegemony in the late seventeenth century. Based on a foundation in the democratic, Judeo-Christian-Muslim religious and scientific traditions of the West, other important cultures such as those of China, India, the Ottoman Empire, pre-Columbian America, and Africa will be analyzed to identify comparative, synthetic, and antagonistic elements.
