What topics will I learn about in World History?

World History is designed not only to introduce students to world history, but also to help them evaluate the people, events, and ideas of world history from a biblical worldview.

As they examine the history of the world, students will refine their analytical abilities and critical thinking skills in order to understand historical and geographical context, make comparisons across cultures, use documents and other primary sources, and recognize and discuss different interpretations and historical frameworks.

Students successfully completing this course will be able to:

  • Know important facts, concepts, and theories pertaining to world history and give a biblical-worldview analysis of those facts, concepts, and theories.
  • Place important historical events, individuals, movements, and civilizations in chronological order.
  • Analyze and interpret basic data relevant to world history.
  • Understand the interaction between the environment and the development of human societies, cultures, and civilizations.
  • Analyze the similarities and differences between peoples and cultures of the world.
  • Trace the development of world civilizations, nations, and empires.
  • Biblically understand the development, diffusion, and impact of major world religions.
