Students will be able to give examples of individuals who have shaped history. (assessment: assessment Professors evaluation of answers to exam, quiz, and discussion questions and in essays) COURSE THEMES, READING ASSIGNMENTS, STUDY GUIDE QUESTIONS/ CLASS DISCUSSION QUESTIONS--(Course Objectives) Course Concept The history of the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries has been one of continued cycles of change, war, revolution, and reaction.

Thematic Course Outline Each of the following themes will be pursued in one or more sessions during the course. This is a thematic outline of the general course content. Each theme also has a list of study questions listed in the study guide on “Blackboard”, a student should be able to discuss the questions in class. As a result of their reading, listening to class presentations, answering the questions in the study guide, doing the map and document analysis, viewing the films, doing the essay research and critique of web sites, having a museum experience, and participating in class discussions students should be successful in learning the content and method of history and as a result do well in exams and their critical analysis paper. Students should also gain a degree of historical perspective on contemporary events. Themes will be developed across other themes. The focus will be on the movements emerging in the West and at times in reaction to the West and then evolving globally such as: individual rights, self determination, industrialization, the evolution of global war (WWI, WWII, Cold War), wars of revolution, the advent of the “Isms”(nationalism, Imperialism, totalitarianism) decolonization, individual human liberation and national liberation . The evolution of Human Rights is a critical element in our study. Developing a Historical perspective on all of the above elements are why the course is part of your degree core.

    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.
