This course explores the early civilizations of the Greeks and Romans and how they influenced modern western culture. Students will learn the origins and results of the French, Glorious, American, and Industrial revolutions. The course will conclude with a discussion on the expanding imperialistic world of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. This is the first course in a two-part World History series (HIST 061 and HIST 063); however, either course may be taken independently of the other.
