WORLD HISTORY I: THE RISE OF HUMAN CIVILIZATION
Level 3                                             1 Credit
     This survey course emphasizes the development of major civilizations from ancient times up to the modern era.  Students explore ancient and premodern history in a number of areas including Europe, Asia, and Africa.  They focus on essential themes and under-standings including political systems; time, continuity and change; and the development of human civilizations with an emphasis on how belief systems influence civilizations.  Students study the uniqueness of Western and non-Western cultures, and the political, social, and economic links connecting them.  Students develop an appreciation for the
historical development of democratic values and institutions from a Western perspective. 

They also learn and apply critical reading, writing, and thinking skills through primary source analysis, academic research, essay writing, mock trials, and debates.
