HIST 121 - Global History I

Credit Hours: 3

In this course, students examine the remote past to understand the roots of contemporary social institutions. Students study the Old World (Africa and Eurasia) and the New World (The Americas) in separate units, in order to emphasize that the two developed simultaneously and in isolation from each other, thus laying the groundwork for History 122, which begins with the breaking of that isolation. 

NOTE: History 121 and 122 may be taken in any order.
