HIST 332 - Pre-Columbian American History (4)


A thematic and chronological approach to the study of the section of the Americas that would, beginning in 1492, be colonized by Spain and Portugal. It emphasizes the three great pre-invasion civilizations of the Maya, the Aztec, and the Empire of the Inca but also explores other contemporary polities in the region. Historical archaeology as well as readings of primary texts in many forms from this time will be utilized to bring these civilizations into modern focus. See department chair.
