This course examines the history of Europe through a discussion of change that begins with medieval Europe; moves to the Renaissance, the Reformation, the rise of monarchs, the Enlightenment, the Industrial Revolution, the influence of nationalism on Europe, and the rise of totalitarian governments; and concludes with a discussion of Europe today. The course asks students to decide whether the changes were for the best. This is the third course in a three-part World History series (HIST 061, HIST 063, and HIST 065); however, any of these courses may be taken independently of the others.
