What’s in a course name?
Should high school and college history classes be WesternCiv or World History/World Thought?
Spoiler Alert: What matters more than the course title is how the instructor approaches the material. The inclusion of multiple historiographical approaches and the critique of historiographies is more important than a course name. In either a Western Civ or a World History class, European dominance will be covered in the course material. It is more important than the class incorporates a critique of European dominance than a critique of the course title.
