Course Descriptions: Spring 2014 - HTY 106: History of European Civilization II

Instructor:  Richard Blanke

Time:  Monday, Wednesday, and Friday; 1:10 – 2:00 pm

Description:  This course offers an introductory survey of key developments in the history of European (or Western) Civilization since 1715. While covering the last three centuries of European history in general, its focus is on the major trans-national developments – political, economic, intellectual, and social – that have characterized this civilization and its member states (including the United States); and which remain an essential component of a modern liberal education. A secondary objective is a better understanding of the significant differences, historical and contemporary, between societies shaped by European Civilization and other parts of the world.  This course satisfies the Western Cultural Tradition and the Social Contexts and Institutions General Education requirements. Its format is that of a Power Point-aided lecture course, but with ample opportunity for questions and comments. The usual meeting time is MWF at 1:10 pm; the enrollment limit is 100; there is no prerequisite.
