In American Life I (HIS 106) and Europe Since 1500 (HIS 116) students investigate two societies developing side by side, interacting, diverging, and disputing through the crucible of political, military and philosophical conflict to produce radically new societies that constitute the modern world.
These linked courses are designed for both the major beginning a career in historical study and the non-major fulfilling Intellectual Foundations requirements in a more supportive and engaging atmosphere. The content of the courses interact to provide a more thorough understanding of the material and provide additional support for the personal development of the student.
History is the study of the development of ideas and events that shape the growth of people and institutions.
Programs in the History and Social Studies Education Department ensure both a knowledge and an understanding of the foundations of human civilization, stimulate thinking about the evolution and interaction of ideas, develop facility with written and verbal expression, increase confidence in articulating ideas, and encourage the critical awareness of self so important to an educated individual.
Courses within the community:
HIS 116: Europe since 1500 (Major Requirement)
HIS 106: American Life I (If and Major Requirement)
UNC 100: Mastering the Academic Environment (First-Year Seminar)
