This portion of the exam covers the whole course and is designed to make you think about the larger issues this course is designed to address. The two essays you will write on this portion of the test will ask you to take what you have learned about pre-1500 world history and find meaningful connections and relevance to today. The essay questions are broad, but you will be required to pick items from the lists below to include in your essay.
