HIST 2020 World History Since 1500


This foundational course explores global history chronologically and thematically, focusing on the inter-relationships among world regions in the era from 1500 to the present. It surveys cultural, economic and political interactions, and the continuing processes of global integration as well as differentiation. Students will read primary sources, and learn to use and interpret charts, documents, maps, graphs, and web resources. The course will familiarize students with historical interpretations and how the past is examined and debated, and will require a research paper. Prior to taking HIST 202, students should take a 1000-level survey of the pre-1500 world (HIST 1010 , 10300, or 10400). This course fills the World History 2000-level requirement for Majors and is open to all students. Writing intensive sections of the course will require a minimum of 12 pages of formal writing. Prerequisite(s): HIST 1010  OR HIST 1020  OR HIST 1030  OR HIST 1040  OR HIST 1050
