The World and the West II is designed to evaluate and examine the historical tendencies in socio-cultural and geo-political settings of eastern and western cultures from ca. 1550’s to the present. This course will highlight the political and cultural systems of different countries, and their aspirations for self-determination and independence, in light of foreign influence.
Students will learn to historically authenticate and evaluate primary evidence and documents and comprehensively evaluate the historical framework. Students will also learn how to interpret human encounters through the lens of a Christian worldview.
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.
