HST 255: Making the Modern World

This class is no longer offered as of Winter 2019.

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

“Online classes allowed me to take more credits per semester while working part-time. Besides, what is better than attending school curled up on the couch and in your pajamas!”
