5 credits

Students in this course are introduced to the major historical events and global conflicts that shaped the development of the world from the Age of Imperialism through the end of World War II. The use of four specific global cities provides students the opportunity to view events from multiple perspectives. Throughout the course the global themes of diaspora, accretion, and cultural expressions are employed to connect these perspectives. Students investigate political, cultural, and social history to create historical travelogues, short essays, thereby connecting multiple historical perspectives to evaluate key events and changes that shaped the first half of the 20th century and created a global community.
