HIS1000: World History II

05/01/2023 to 04/30/2024 • Modified 06/08/2023

Course Description

This year-long course surveys African, American, Asian, and European cultures from the Renaissance to modern times. The course includes units on the Reformation, exploration, the economic and scientific revolutions, the Enlightenment, industrialization, the world wars, and the contemporary world. Students will read various primary sources to learn history straight from the words of those who lived it, and the course’s biblical approach will demonstrate that man, though made in the image of God, is innately sinful, has limitations, and is in need of redemption.
