WORLD HISTORY CURRICULUM
This course traces world history--Europe, Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the United States--from the pivotal year 1775 to the present in two roughly equally balanced halves. It incorporates the "Four Pillars" of American exceptionalism, or, more accurately, the absence of these and the effects this absence had, on other parts of the world. It includes culture, politics, and economics of the major parts of the world.
