HIST 1035 Europe and the Modern World I (Fall: 3 )


Course Description

This course surveys European history from the Renaissance through the French Revolution, emphasizing economic, political, and social developments. The course pays particular attention to the development of the global economy and the European state system. We will examine these developments and their impact on the lives of men and women both in Europe and around the globe. As a result, understanding issues of class, gender, and race are crucial to this endeavor. Our goal is to learn about history not simply for the sake of knowledge, but in order to think critically of our past and present.
