HIST 151 - World History to 1500

A thematic approach to World History with broad geographical and chronological coverage to 1500. It emphasizes the critical reading of primary and secondary sources in order to introduce students to the discipline of history. Students will study the origins of civilizations, the creation of empires, and the rise of nation-states. Political, diplomatic, economic, social, religious, philosophical and cultural perspectives will be addressed. General principles will be augmented by case studies from specific regions. Students are advised to take both HIST 151 and 152 during the same semester, unless they have applicable transfer credit for one or the other. Fall and Spring.
