The Cold War and the Modern Era Era Perspective

The Cold War and the Modern Era Perspective

This is a semester long course designed to present students with an in-depth look at the origins, notable events and results of the Cold War between the Soviet Union and the United States that affected the entire world, in one way or another, between 1945 and 1991.  We will discuss Stalin and the Soviet Union, the Cuban Missile Crisis, Vietnam, China under Mao, Che Guevara, Gorbachev and much more. The course will help students to better understand the world today by looking at the events of the recent past that helped shape it. 

We are welcoming students to class this fall either via a hybrid in-person/online learning model in NYC or via fully remote, synchronous online classes.
