HIS1000 World Civilisations to 1500 CE
Students will require access to e-mail and have internet access to UConnect for this course.
This course examines the rise and fall of civilisations from the Neolithic period to the start of the European Renaissance, focussing on cultural change, political and religious beliefs, and, in particular, social structures. The course introduces the basic principles of historical methodology and complements the course ANT1000: World Archaeology which employs an anthropological approach. The course is particularly suited to Arts and Education students, and is ideal as a general elective for all those seeking an introduction to the study of world history.
