UNBC history courses focus on a wide range of themes and continents, and will help you make sense of current events. How can we understand issues facing the Middle East, Latin America, the European Union, or Canada without knowing how those societies developed? And how can we understand questions of nationalism, inequality, or climate change without learning about how humans have created or confronted these issues over time?
