Special Topics in History; The Rise and Fall of the British Empire

*If you are participating in the Global Classrooms section of this course, please disregard information regarding the pre and post departure requirements.* This short 3-credit course focuses on the people, places, and policies that shaped the development of the British Empire, the single largest trans-cultural phenomenon in the world since 1500. During our investigations or and virtual visits to political and cultural sites in London students examine how ideology, migration, technology and resistance shaped the expansion and eventual retrenchment of British imperial power in the Atlantic world and the Indian sub-continent. This is a Global Classrooms course, developed in partnership with the Office of International Affairs (OIA) to provide virtual opportunities for global engagement. Global Classrooms can range from embedded experiences to immersive, project-based collaboration. Learn more about Global Classrooms: go.umd.edu/gc-umd.
