UGC 111 is usually completed before UGC 112. Introduces students to the development of world civilizations from prehistory to about 1500, and concerns the peoples, forces, and ideas that have shaped the way individuals have experienced (and still do experience) the world. Features global perspectives, focuses on the origins and development, geographical context, and the interactions of world cultures. All sections of the course share common goals. Different sections emphasize different themes and perspectives. This course is a controlled enrollment (impacted) course. Students who have previously attempted the course and received a grade other than W may repeat the course in the summer or winter; or only in the fall or spring semester with a petition to the College of Arts and Sciences Deans' Office.
