Class Description: The course of this class will cover from the most ancient of times to our modern day. It will use generally secondary resources for textbooks and a smattering of selections from primary sources. The objective of the class is to give students a working knowledge both of world history in a linear fashion and a detailed knowledge of military development in a cyclical fashion. The sections of Ancient and Medieval will occur in the Fall Semester while Modern will occur in Spring Semester.
Course Work: 1) There will be 4 tests total; one at the end of each quarter. 2) Two papers, one for each semester, both 9 pages long on a research topic. 3) Attendance does affect the students grade, though participation will not, as it will be mostly lectures with some class discussion mixed in.
Three Sections: 1) Ancient, 2) Medieval and 3) Modern
Ancient: Megiddo – Vandals Sacking Rome (1469 bc – 499 ad)
Medieval: Viking Invasion – Siege of Byzantium/Hundred Years Wars (500 ad – 1400 ad)
