HIS 205 The Modern World

3 hours 

By examining events in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas, this course explores the major historical processes that shaped the modern world, including industrialization, the rise of the nation-state, war, colonialism and anti-colonialism, and accelerating global contacts among peoples. The course considers how a globalized world dominated by a few industrialized nations arose, as well as how new and often competing ways of understanding the world took root. Students are examined on all readings either through quizzes or written assignments. Primary and secondary sources are assigned for class discussion, written exercises, and examinations.
