Without a thorough knowledge of history, you cannot fully comprehend the events of today. This online unit of study from Macquarie University is designed to explain the significance of turbulent events in Europe during the period from 1789 to the early twentieth century, and provide you with an understanding of the foundations of modern Western society.
From ancient regimes to the Enlightenment and the French Revolution, this unit covers a turbulent age of social and political change. You will explore bourgeois life and how industrialisation had an effect on class and the distribution of people and wealth.
The unit goes into the origins of the many new concepts and movements that emerged throughout the long nineteenth century including rationality, psychology, nihilism, relativity, feminism, industrial capitalism, liberalism and socialism. Many of these modes of thought have shaped our society today, and this unit gives you the chance to examine historical sources and develop your critical and analytical skills along the way.
Delivered online by Open Universities Australia in partnership with Macquarie University, this unit counts towards the Bachelor of Arts at Macquarie University.
