This course examines and interprets the major events and figures from Ancient Mesopotamia to the middle of the 20th century. Students critically observe the historical, religious, scientific, and political issues that have shaped the history of Europe and North America. Specific attention is paid to how certain events or people influenced world events to such an extent that the world changed forever. By comparing contemporary events to historical ones, this class demonstrates that history does, in fact, repeat itself.
