ERC focuses on international understanding and engagement and its students complete a core general education sequence called the Making of the Modern World, among other GE requirements. The Making of the Modern World (MMW) program is an academic unit housed within Eleanor Roosevelt College. As the general education course sequence for ERC, MMW provides an interdisciplinary overview of the world from the emergence of the human species to the present.
MMW is an academic expression of the mission of ERC, which is, in part, to feature dimensions of international understanding and cultural diversity. We are committed to ensuring that our graduates, who come from all academic disciplines, have a basic understanding of the diverse human experience that has shaped our world. MMW provides that understanding, while also teaching research and writing skills critical for academic success at the university. Students entering UC San Diego as freshmen take a five-course sequence from MMW 11 to MMW 15. Transfer students, entering UC San Diego as upper-classmen and having already fulfilled the college writing requirement, take a two-course transfer sequence, MMW 121 and MMW 122. MMW courses are taught during the academic year and during the summer.
