About World History on Brainscape

What is World History?

Where did the human race come from and how did the early communities function? How did our ancestors survive without robot cleaners and various mobile apps? Well, around thousands of years ago, humans went from hunting boars and seeking caves to building airplanes and creating improbabilities such as cellphones and laptops and the internet. Our world’s history is, in fact, an extraordinary journey, with triumph and tragedy along its course, as well as revolutions and globalizations.

World History is an area of study that examines the past in the form of a global perspective. It is distinct from other history courses as it has a broader scope. World historians analyze interconnections between nations and civilizations. They examine zones of interaction such as trading, migration, conquest, and developments.

The benefits of studying world history may be less tangible than other fields of study, but it should be studied because it is essential to individuals and humanity. It helps us understand societies and their people; it serves as a terrain for moral understanding or contemplation, it provides identity through nationalism and serves as a ground of citizenship.

Students with a degree in World History can get a job as historians, biographers, educators, historical site guides, museum curators/educators, state librarians, conservation manager, artifact restorers, tour managers, researchers, and writers.
