Humanities Open when gep_category = HUM
Each course in the Humanities category of the General Education Program will provide instruction and guidance that help students to:
 
 
Identify and describe the origins and development of social, economic, political, and religious institutions from pre-conquest to independence in Latin America.
 
 
Exam essay question, such as "The Catholic Church had an immense influence in colonial Latin America. Identify, describe and analyze the role of the Church in colonial society, economics and politics, provide two specific examples of its influence in each sector, and indicate how this influence is related to Thomistic philosophy."
 
 
Evaluate, critique, and interpret primary and secondary historical sources, the evidence that historians use to offer perspectives on the meaning of the past.
 
 
Exam essay question, such as "Bartolomé de las Casas was one of the few prominent clerics who relentlessly advocated for the better treatment of indigenous people in colonial Latin America. Based on our reading of his 'Brief Relation of the Destruction of the Indies,' critically evaluate the central tenets and structure of his argument and interpret his position within the wider historiographical context of the works covered in this course."


 
 
Analyze and explain, in academic arguments about history using reasons and evidence that are appropriate to the discipline, the influence of major historical forces and events that shaped Latin America in the pre-Hispanic and colonial periods.
 
 
Exam essay question, such as "Given the scale of the mortality associated with the Spanish conquest of Latin America and subsequent colonial policies, colonial rule has often be described as a genocide. Based on historical evidence, craft reasoned arguments to advocate both sides of this position, drawing on primary and secondary sources."
