HIS2503 Civilization Past and Present I

Welcome!

Welcome to this research guide for Civilization Past and Present I. This guide will help you find resources that you can use for your course project and Collateral Writing Assignment.

This course traces the rise of both western and eastern civilizations from their preliterate beginnings. Consideration is given to the development of civilization in China, India, the Graeco-Roman world, Eastern Europe, and Russia. The student becomes acquainted with the rise of Islam and the beginnings of civilization in Africa, Europe, and the Americas. This foundation leads to an understanding of states and political systems. As the history of world civilization is developed, a number of global issues are considered. These include migration, religion and government, location and identity, and technological exchange. This course concludes with a review of the scientific revolution and the Enlightenment.

Global University does not necessarily agree with all the views represented in the resources in this guide. These are provided for the student to contrast and compare with the Biblical text and ideas presented in the Global University IST.
