  THE CONTEMPORARY WORLD

Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2010-11

El planteamiento de esta asignatura constituye un primer acercamiento a la Historia Contemporánea. Por ello, junto a los principales problemas que marcaron el mundo hasta 1914, pretendemos que el/la alumno/a se familiarice con una serie de categorías y conceptos fundamentales que le permitan adquirir los conocimientos básicos para poder afrontar los contenidos de asignaturas posteriores. Junto a esos conceptos se otorga especial importancia a la comprensión de los procesos que transformaron la sociedad, la política, la economía y la cultura occidental y su relación con otros ámbitos como Asia y África. El objetivo es captar el interés de los alumnos/as por los temas desarrollados, teniendo en cuenta en todo momento su relación con el presente. De forma paralela a la adquisición de conocimientos se pretende fomentar la autonomía del alumnado a la hora de buscar información, desarrollar su capacidad para la síntesis y para la expresión oral y escrita.

 

            Esta asignatura se coordina con las asignaturas “De las guerras mundiales hasta la globalización” -3º Curso- y “América: Historia desde la colonización hasta el tiempo presente” -4º Curso-.
