THE MODERN WORLD 

Course Description: Students taking this course will benefit from the integration of History, Literature, and Theology in true liberal arts fashion. The facts and events of modern history are illuminated by literature and primary sources of the time period, along with thought-provoking essays written by a wide range of contemporary scholars and educators.
