This course gives an overview of world history, from 1500 to today. We start with a discussion of how social changes, new technologies, and the discovery of the New World caused a shift in the allocation of power and authority. Next, we discuss how religious, intellectual, political, and economic revolutions changed the world. We then move on to look at industrialization and nationalism, and how both made positive and negative impacts on every-day life. We will explore the great wars of the 20th Century, and their lasting impacts on the world. We conclude our discussion by looking at the world over the last few decades, and how our understanding of world history shapes our views today.
You will have access to your course for 4 months (120 days) from the time of purchase.
