    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Prof. Oakes is very interested and well-versed in her material. She also is very straight-forward about assignments and is always available to make more sense of the material/expectations. She lectures with the use of slides, but these are always interesting. Prof. Oakes always makes very straight-forward study guides as well. She holds several extra credit opportunities during the semester, including a movie night from which you write a historical analysis of the film viewed. She is a very honest, trustworthy, and dedicated professor. Even if you do not plan to go into Asian Studies, I would still recommend her class.

    Course highlights:

    You learn about the entwined history of China, Korea, and Japan. The time periods covered are from prehistoric era to the very early 1900's. It is an introductory course, so do not expect extreme detail in any one part of the course; that is what the other Asian Studies courses are for. There is also a material culture component, seeing as Prof. Oakes specializes in Asian arts. These artifacts and artworks shown will help put into perspective the history of each region throughout development.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to read the pages assigned before each class, but do not pay full price for the books. Find them on Amazon or another cost-friendly site. Also, DO NOT forget to write your journal entries for this class on TIME. They are eas points and are easily deducted from if the journal entries are late. These would just be discussions on-line toward a certain reading for the week. (The due dates for these are written in the syllabus.)
