This course will compare historical and cultural events in Europe with the same type of events in the Americas (North, Central, and South) during the same time period; highlights include in-depth discussions on medieval Europe, the Renaissance, the Aztecs, the Incas, and the colonial efforts in North America. This is the first course in a two-part World History series for grades seven and eight (SOCST 033 and SOCST 034); however, either course may be taken independently of the other.
