This survey course will examine the history of the world by studying ancient civilizations, incorporating map study and educational videos in a discussion-based format. Rather than examine each culture in a vacuum, we will relate each civilization’s experience to what was happening in the rest of the
world to gain a contextual understanding of the people. Focus will be on the seven Cradles of Civilization. See the attached syllabus for details.
