Great reasons to take this class:

*Self interest--it will help you earn a degree, it may help you be a more competitive job applicant. it may help you understand things you need to know, it may be the basis for something else you need to learn

*Concern for the world--it will help you understand modern conflicts and tensions; you hope to learn from the mistakes of the past; you feel connected to people elsewhere and want to understand them; you want to reach across cultures in your job or home life to connect with someone different.

*Curiosity--you want to know why things are the way they are; you are interested in a specific group that is different from your group; you want to know more about the past
