World History (1117LHS)

This course places the development of Western civilisation from c.600 AD in a global context. You will learn to recognise and analyse trends and interconnections across time and space, as you explore developments and civilisations such as the rise of Islam and the spread of Christianity, Renaissance Europe and Ming China, the Atlantic slave trade and the redistribution of global power, and decolonisation and the Cold War. The course takes a thematic approach to studying world history, examining, among other topics, the global impact of disease, environmental change, warfare, piracy, trade, empire and religious belief. In charting the long history of globalisation, this course aims to teach you how to analyse, understand and explain global historical interconnection and change.
