This depends on your history program. More competitive programs (think Oxbridge and Ivy League) usually have greater strengths in specialty areas.

They figure they've covered enough world history in school. I had 2 god damn years of U.S. history in all my 12 years of required history classes. Granted the world history was focused on Europe, repeated a lot of stuff, and skipped around the timeline like an autistic chimp with tourette syndrome.

Come to think of it, school history sucks.

>Once Charlemagne is done we spend the rest of the time on the Crusades
>Byzantine Empire is only mentioned when necessary.
