Meets MN Transfer Curriculum Goal Areas 6 and 8 - Humanities & Global Perspectives. This course aims to expand students' knowledge of the various cultures within the Middle East. It examines how the region's cultural values have been influenced by their shared history since the 19th century, as well as by their major religion of Islam. Students thus achieve a thorough understanding of the various cultures within the region by examining the customs and rituals, critiquing culturally influenced political systems, and gaining insight from speakers and field trips. Student Learning Outcomes: * Analyze the factors that led to the creation of the current borders within the Middle Eastern countries. * Analyze, synthesize, and critically examine cultural roots and literacy. * Research the role of Islam and colonialism in shaping the Middle East region * Differentiate between primary and secondary identities to understand the dynamics of national unity. * Evaluate colonial attitudes and their impact on today's stereotypes about the Middle East. * Critically evaluate how culture and language shape our thoughts, behaviors, and attitudes * Identify the geographical distribution of ethnic groups by colonialist powers * Evaluate a current conflict in the Middle East using a historical and social perspective to gain deeper understanding.
