Course Description
Welcome to a historical study abroad. Over the next fifteen weeks, we will explore over ten countries and 4000 years of people, events, and civilizations which have profoundly shaped and continue to influence our culture. This class will examine not only political history, but economic, religious, social, cultural and intellectual issues.

Course Objectives
By examining a range of historical disciplines, hopefully this class will be able to provide you with a better understanding of your own major and the larger context in which it developed. In addition, through papers, exams, discussions, and class activities, students will be given the opportunity to improve their oral and written skills. More importantly, especially from the viewpoint of a historian, this class will provide the student with a firm foundation for understanding western civilization and some of the questions and issues that have been of concern throughout this period

Cheating
Please note that this university has a no tolerance policy regarding cheating and plagiarism. Use of another person's exact words without quote marks and reference is plagiarism, as is restating another person's ideas but not providing a reference to indicate that it is not your own. If you have any questions, see your Student Handbook, or talk to me.   Students who are caught cheating will be reported to the Academic Affairs Office and receive zero points along with other possible consequences.  The procedure outlined in the Student Handbook will be followed (http://www.georgefox.edu/catalog/handbook/academic/standing/honesty.html)
