HIST 1030: The World and the West I

Offered to Grades 11-12 (and high-achieving 10th graders with counselor approval)
1 Credit (Enlightium) // 3 Credits (NNU)

The World and the West I is designed to delve students into a peripheral understanding of historical trends in socio-cultural and geopolitical settings of eastern and western cultures from ca. 600 B.C.—1550 C.E. Students will learn how to apply historical corroboration, evaluate primary evidence/documents, and make comprehensive evaluations of the historical framework. Students will also learn how to interpret human encounters through the lenses of a Christian worldview.

This course will benefit all who wish to expand their research abilities, learn how to synthesize information, and prepare for research-oriented courses in college.

Topics Discussed:

  • The trends of ancient civilizations
  • Significant transcultural, religious, and socio-political issues in a given era
  • How the factors of movement, demographics, migration, and human interaction affect each culture in its context
  • The student’s own Christian heritage

To receive NNU—General Education requirements—credit, a student must earn a grade of C- or better. However, the student would still receive credit from Enlightium Academy if they pass the course.
