Prof. Herbst teaches courses on world history though the Making of the Modern World Program as well as on environmental topics in History and Environmental Studies. He teaches in diverse formats: large lectures, small seminars, experiential courses, study abroad programs, and even online classes.
The Making of the Modern World is a required general education world history sequence for students enrolled in UC San Diego’s Eleanor Roosevelt College. MMW is a five-course, lower-division sequence (MMW11-15) for students entering UC San Diego as freshmen and a two-course, upper-division sequence (MMW121-122) for transfer students. If you have questions, I welcome inquiries and conversations. We can even have coffee or lunch!
