Would you like to learn about past centuries through romantic love letters, songs from the American Revolution and inspiring slave narratives? Would you like to discover contemporary history by meeting a Holocaust survivor, visiting a West African grocery store, watching Chinese cinema and exploring your own heritage?
While you gain an understanding of the peoples of different regions and different eras in history, you’ll find a respect for their differences and a new perspective to assess the events of the present and the world’s prospects for the future. Students in our courses do not memorize dates.
