Modern European History

Modern European History*

Modern European History at Highlands Ranch High School is a continuation of "The Dawn of Civilization" and is intended to complete the student's survey of European History. This course begins with the events of 1815 and the fall of Napoleon, and traces European social, political, and cultural developments through the 19th and 20th centuries to the present day.


"The death of one man is a tragedy;
the death of a million men is a statistic."


Special attention will be given to the impact of the Industrial Revolution and Imperialism; the 20th-century political ideologies: Socialism, Fascism, Communism; recent democratic movements; contemporary developments in the former Soviet Union, former Yugoslavia, and the European Community. Students will analyze historical documents and evaluate impact of various political philosophies.

*Mr. Sedivy no longer teaches geography, or Modern European History (non AP), but we've decided to leave his web contribution to these classes up anyway. The AP classes cover the same material, but in more detail.
