Course Description:

This writing-intensive, freshman-level course is an in-depth study of the major cultures which developed in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Americas from the beginnings of human civilization up to the present day. Political, social, cultural, economic, and intellectual history are covered, particularly as they shape contemporary world events. The depth of analysis is greater in the course, as is the examination of primary documents. Students will receive direct training in the writing of research papers and be responsible for the production of two research papers during the school year.
