The Addition of an African History course as a Gen Ed History Option
As it stands at George Mason University, Western Civilization and World History are the only options students have to fulfill the history requirement within Mason Core. While these classes are important, they cover topics that many students already learn in their compulsory education experience.
I am proposing the addition of an African history course which would overview the history of Africa--which many students are unfamiliar with--while still being inclusive of other civilizations and cultures within the course.
If you are in agreement that a course such as this should be added, please sign this petition!
