This class was tough.
It was a different history than I'd had in high school. Usually, we focus only on Europe and then the US. This was my first time getting an in-depth look at Latin America. There was just so much I didn't know had happened.
I really gained a new perspective. I knew nothing about Latin America beyond just the basics. This course gave me the history and then explored how that shaped Latin America's role in the world today.

Advice for students:
Definitely do the readings and sign up for the optional discussion. It really helps when you get to the essays on the exam.
