Fixed-Pace Course





In this course, students traverse the historical, cultural, and political terrain of Europe, exploring its influence on global affairs from ancient times through the modern era. This course delves into the region’s diverse landscape, from ancient empires that laid the groundwork for Western civilization to modern nations shaping the global landscape today. From the grandeur of the Colosseum to the architectural marvels of Gothic cathedrals, students explore Europe’s rich architectural heritage. Engaging discussions, research projects, and simulations foster a deeper understanding of the continent’s complex history, diverse cultures, and its enduring impact on the world stage.

Completion of this course requires regular access to a laptop or desktop computer with working microphone and webcam, as well as a reliable internet connection.

This Fixed-Paced course incorporates a blend of synchronous and asynchronous elements. Students and teacher meet live via zoom on a regular weekly schedule. In addition, students complete coursework including guided readings, interactive videos, text and video-based discussion threads, problem sets, individual and collaborative projects, and so on. While these activities are time-flexible, teachers sequence them with weekly deadlines to help students keep on track and encourage and support the development of productive time management skills.
