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 large lectures, small seminars, study abroad and study away programs, as well as 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!
