Modern History

Modern History

The study of history is an inquiry into past human experiences that helps make the present more intelligible. Modern History challenges students to consider the great social, technological, economic, political and moral transformations of the late eighteenth century to present. Modern History is especially relevant to the lives of students , as the events and issues that form its content, are in many cases, still current.
