HIST 109 - World History to 1500 meets the Humanities requirement of the Knowledge of the Discipline because it explores the history of world societies from the period of the earliest civilization to the sixteenth century mainly from a cultural perspective. During this period, humans in Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Europe developed a variety of literary, religious, and philosophical works that continue to this day to shape how we feel, think, act, interact with others, and understand the self and the outer world. A main goal of this course is to read, analyze, discuss, and write about these canonical texts of literature, religion, and philosophy. In so doing, students will gain a broad knowledge of the diverse cultures that humans in the past cultivated, and develop sensitivity to and appreciation for the cultures of both the Western and non-Western Worlds.
