HIST 2006 - World History 1945–2000♦


(5 cr.) Students in this course are introduced to the history of the contemporary world from 1945 to 2000. They explore and discuss major historical events that shaped the development of the world from post-World War II decolonization through the post-Cold War era. Students consider elements introduced in this era, such as scientific advancements, technological innovations, and political policies, and then they write about the elements that they believe are most important in influencing contemporary life. Students also learn to use a historical perspective to evaluate global events and key changes that shaped the second half of the 20th century.
