Some people believe that history is dull, but that is probably because their experience of studying history has been based on memorizing names, dates, and battles.
This course will look at the stories of how people, institutions, and cultures responded to the challenges of their own eras and then make connections with the way the western world thinks and responds to issues in the present time. This course will cover the important contributions to science, philosophy, literature, religion, and politics of Egyptian culture, classical Greece, Rome, and early Judaism and Christianity.
Participants who complete this course will better understand the modern Western viewpoint and will certainly enjoy interesting discussions based on readings and lectures provided by the instructor.
