Topics include the emergence of the United States and Soviet Union as superpowers, the division of Europe after 1945, the creation of Cold War alliances, decolonization, superpower conflict by proxy, the rise of regional powers, the collapse of the Soviet Union, and the legacy of the conflict for the 21st century.

Notes

This course is fully online and asynchronous, meaning you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage in course-related activities through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Your course learning will be based on weekly module content and activities that you can go through independently. Note: there are still deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis.

Your instructor may also include occasional scheduled sessions for Q&As and other discussion activities, using web conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Meet. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
