Over the past 75 years, the world has experienced widespread changes propelled by interrelated political, economic, social and environmental events and processes. This course will provide tools with which students can question, unpack and analyze the complex developments of this time period. Specifically, we will examine the major geopolitical upheavals as well as less dramatic transitions resulting from colonialism, independence, civil war, oil economies, globalization, and other key factors.

Students will gain proficiency in all target language skill areas: reading, writing, speaking, listening, and comprehension. Course materials are created by the professor. There is no assigned text for this course.
