It seeks to increase a student’s ability to understand the causation of major events, the complexity of human motivation, and the linkages between Past and Present – in other words, how the study of History helps us to understand our world today. Students, furthermore, should develop greater competency in critical thinking and in written communication. The course can be used to meet three hours toward the General Education requirement for the humanities. Course activities will consist of lectures, films (which students should regard as lectures), class discussion, assigned readings, and examinations. Students are encouraged to ask questions or make relevant comments at any time about a subject under consideration.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
