New and Upcoming Courses

HIST 157: Global Environmental History (FGC)
Explores the influence of nature—climate, topography, plants, animals, and microorganisms—on human history and the way people, in turn, have influenced the natural world around them.

HIST 430: Persia, Greece, and Rome in the Classical Age
A historical examination of the interaction between the Achaemenid and Parthian empires of Persia and the classical societies of the Mediterranean, such as the Greek city-states, Macedonia, the Hellenistic and Roman Empires.

HIST 451E: The History of the Future: How We Got Here and Where We are Going (History & Literature: World/Comparative)
Humans are now the major geological force on the planet, and our activities have impacted its entire structure, from the atmosphere and the oceans, to its soils, freshwater systems, and all biological life forms. This course will examine how historians, scientists, journalists, and novelists have tried to understand this development and how they have helped to shape a new “Anthropocene discourse.”
