HIST 108 - World History Since 1500

Lecture - Lab - Credit Hours: 3-0-3
IAI Code: S2 913N
World History Since 1500 will chronologically examine different themes which together create an overview of the evolving structure of world society between 1500 and 2000. Through a variety of historical sources, we set out to understand how the world that was so disparate and separate in 1500 became so interlocked and dependent in the next 500 years. This approach looks at global trends such as industrialization, immigration, and colonization, and how specific countries dealt with these trends, and in the process, developed nation states.
