History

History provides you with a broad view on the past in order to give insights into our modern-day world. How did our society develop? How did this development go in other parts of the world? During the first three weeks, another historical time period and approach will be discussed every week. In the last week, you’ll be asked to write an essay. The assignment you hand in every week will be checked and graded by the tutor. The time periods that we’ll pay attention to in the web class are The Ancient World, The Early-modern Time and The Modern Time.
