HST 255: Making the Modern World
In this course, students examine the most significant global events of the past two centuries. While lectures present background and contextual information and regional case studies transport the student around the globe (from Europe to Africa, Asia and the Americas), the focus of the course is the discussion of assigned books on each of the major events covered in class.

What Students Say About Online Classes
“My teacher posted his lectures and activities on Blackboard weekly, so I was able to complete all required class work and tests at my own leisure. Most importantly, I learned a ton in the course, and my excellent instructor was available by email around the clock.”—Wendy L., 48
