Rationale for Perspectives on a Diverse World - This course fulfills the General Education  program’s Global Awareness  requirement for Perspectives on a Diverse World by providing the background necessary to understand today’s chief global occurrences, especially the interactions between the Western world and other world cultures. This course examines not only the main political developments of the twentieth century, but also the era’s chief trends in science and technology, economics, social changes and cultural and religious developments, and how these various trends interrelate with one another. After completing this course, students should at a minimum be able to identify the most important individuals and terms of the twentieth century and know the causes and effects of the era’s most important events. They should also have a better understanding of such world-wide problems as nationalism, imperialism, militarism, globalization, ideological and cultural conflict and the varying causes of wars and violence.
