Course Objective: Using a class format that consists of lecture, discussion, and video/audio tape(s) and/or DVDs, if not power point and/or overhead projector presentations, this class has as its overall purpose to provide students with a multi- disciplinary approach to and broad-based but surveyed view of the history of Western Civilization as guided by at least the following: 1)the chronology and the main personalities, movements and events, especially wars and international trade, and concepts of the text-oriented period—from “The First Civilizations”, as described by the book, to 1715. The said approach will also underscore the undeniably, important fact that past and present events are intertwined with the former, directly or indirectly, substantially or not, influencing the latter and even, possibly, the future. Course Requirements: Class attendance and preparation, punctuality, and note- taking are mandatory. Failure to comply with either will most likely result in a lower grade.

Make-up exams due to excused absences will be given only with the permission of at the time selected by the instructor. Schedule them as soon as possible.
