Course Taught:

World History: World History deals with the sum total of human activity and encourages students to explore its achievements, failures and consequences. The course material is organized and presented in a thematic approach. Western and non-western civilizations are compared to show how they have interacted with each other over the short span of man's recorded history. The course charts the human experience through a multi-disciplinary approach and a variety of conceptual lenses, including economic shifts, political decisions and interactions, cultural/sociological developments, religious and ideological movements, as well as causes and effects of military conflicts. Students will be encouraged to view the importance of history in reference to all aspects of life, since human activities shed light on the development of man and society.
