HIST 101

The Rise of European Civilization

This course serves as an introduction to European history from the fourth to seventeenth centuries. Rather than offering a year-by-year account of historical events, the course aims to introduce students to the political structures, socioeconomic developments, and belief systems that shaped people's lives, and to convey a sense of the texture of lived experience during the late antique, medieval, and early modern periods.

Prerequisites: Students who have HIST 101 transfer credit may not take this course.
