HIST 212 - World History II: From 1200 to the Present


This survey of world history from 1200 to the present treats the development of societies in major areas of the world: West, South, and East Asia; North and Sub-Saharan Africa; the northern Mediterranean; Europe; and the Americas. This is neither a comprehensive history of the world nor a traditional overview of world civilizations. More sophisticated than the 100-level Introduction to World Civilizations course designed for all majors, this course is designed to hone the History major’s skills of critical thinking and broad analysis by examining the political, economic, military, social, and religious interactions throughout medieval and modern world history.

Prerequisite: History major or minor. Prerequisites/Corequisites: HIST 211 - World History I: From the Dawn of Humanity to AD 1300 .
Credits: 3
NOTE:
* This course fulfills the Historical Mode of Inquiry of the Liberal Studies Program.
** This course counts toward the 63-credit Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS) graduation requirement.
*** This is a writing-enhanced course.
**** This course fulfills the Intercultural Interconnecting Perspective of the Liberal Studies Program.
