These courses use a chronological format and are organized around significant themes and concepts.  Students study various Global History eras during the two-year program.  Using reference materials, maps, documents, cartoons, video clips, and other materials, teachers encourage students to think and write critically, develop a global perspective of world history, and define culture and civilization from the lens of a social scientist.  Key concepts/themes such as imperialism, nationalism and interdependence are emphasized.  All students take the Global History and Geography Regents exam at the end of the second year. A passing score on this examination is a requirement for graduation.
