    Honors Students Only. The theme of this survey of world civilizations before 1500 CE is leadership lessons from world history. The class will focus on several case studies of leaders from different walks of life and a variety of early civilizations, from the Mesopotamian King Gilgamesh, King David of Israel, the Greek doctor Hippocrates, the Amazons, early Christian martyrs Perpetua and Felicity, the Indian emperors Chandragupta Maurya and Ashoka, and the Muslim explorer Ibn Battuta. In the process, each student will keep a journal of personal reactions and applications, culminating with a personal leadership statement at the end of the semester. This class will be taught 100% online during the June-July summer session. The class can be completed completely asynchronously, but students are invited to join the optional synchronous online discussion every Tuesday evening, 8:00-9:00pm on Zoom.
