Eureka European History Program Overview

If you're unsure about your academic interests, consider enrolling in our Finding Academic Interest 101 course to explore a variety of subjects and find your passion

Starting in 1492, an incredible process was set into motion. That year marked the beginning of the invasion of European empires into the Americas—a region teeming with Native Americans that was previously unknown to Europeans. The world was forever changed by these events. This course investigates the people, events, empires, and processes that were part of this coming together of four continents in the Atlantic world: Europe, North America, South America, and Africa. In these formative years between 1492 and 1800, the modern west was born. Trade, commerce, and European expansion, yes, but usually built on the backs of enslaved Africans and Indians, and on the actual land that Natives formerly possessed. Therefore, this course considers not just the events and peoples themselves, but also the meaning of these events, and their legacies over time, as understood by the various groups involved (as demonstrated by the later independence movements in Latin America and the Caribbean, the contemporary calls for reparations, and the ways that racism and economic inequities continue into the present).
