Join us to sample a class from our Master of Arts in Liberal Studies program and experience what this degree has to offer you.

LSHV-421: Globalization: Path to the Present
Georgetown University Main Campus, Intercultural Center, 219B

Course Description: "The past is the present. It’s the future, too.” Eugene O’Neill, Long Day’s Journey into Night

“The exchange and spread of…information, items, and inconveniences, and human responses to them, is what shapes history. What drives history is the human ambition to alter one’s condition to match one’s hopes.” McNeill & McNeill, The Human Web

“The history of interactions among disparate peoples is what shaped the modern world.” Jared Diamond, Guns, Germs, and Steel

“…a long-term historical perspective does enable us to draw some meaningful conclusions about the past and present and to make educated forecasts for the future.” Robert B. Marks, The Origins of the Modern World

This course is a selective introduction to some of the key issues and main themes of global history. History is a way of learning, and one goal of this course is to promote a better understanding of globalization and its impact on inter-societal relations by taking a broad historical approach.
