EACH GIRL'S SUCCESS
An exceptional independent boarding and day school for girls grades 8-12

World History II

The World History II course focuses on the increasing interconnectedness of the world after 1300 AD. The class begins with an analysis of Europe’s growing power during the Renaissance and Reformation, culminating in Europe’s exploration of the world after 1492. After examining the dominance of absolute rulers around the world during the 17th and 18th centuries, the course charts the emergence of revolutionary ideas, beginning with the American and French Revolutions that undermined the power of absolute rulers. The class then shifts its attention to social and economic issues as it explores the dramatic transformation wrought by the Industrial Revolution throughout the 19th century. The course concludes with the study of the development of Western imperialism around the globe at the end of the 19th century.
