HIST 240

This class consists of a historical survey of African, Asian, "Latin" American, Mideastern, and Oceanic cultures and nation-states from the initial period of systematic European exploration to the very early stages of the postcolonial era. Political, economic, diplomatic, social, religious, and cultural history all will be noted to some degree. The elements required for Minnesota Teacher Certification in the Social Sciences will be given particular emphasis.
