Western History

It is difficult to determine the geographical scope of Western history. Even though major components of Western history comprise European civilizations, they are influenced significantly by the Oriental and Mediterranean civilizations. In addition, since the 16th century, Europeans have advanced to the North and South Americas, Asia, Africa and Oceania, where they either transplanted their civilizations or greatly impacted the indigenous civilizations. The Western History Course targets historical studies of Western civilization on a global basis, encompassing a wide diversity of themes in both research and educational activities. Based on demonstrative studies of individual themes, students are expected to develop their views from macroscopic, global perspectives.
