College Contemporary World History

This course examines world history from the end of the Nineteenth Century to the present. It considers not just the major political and military events of the Twentieth Century, but also religious, social, philosophical and artistic movements that have had a profound impact on the way people think, act, and conduct their personal and public lives today. This course touches everything from the battlefields of France during WWI, the rise of modern China, the Holocaust, the growth of Communism and the Soviet Union, the Iranian Revolution, and the growth of radical Islam to the significant works of Pablo Picasso, the music of the Beatles, the hedonism of the 1970s and the rise of Conservatism in both Europe and the United States. We will consider primary source documents and popular current history authors of today as students learn to argue their ideas in writing, formulating their own opinions and convictions as they consider their future.
