    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class is pretty much as thorough as it is possible to be when covering over 300 years in 6-month online course.

    Course highlights:

    I got a really good feel for the course of modern Western (mostly European) history. The class painted an interesting picture of how Europe's unique sociopolitical landscape has resulted in a shocking amount of change in the last few centuries.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention to the short videos that Dr. Ratliff puts at the beginning of each lesson along with the terms list. They point you to all the information you need to know for the quizzes, and the assignments often come with their own sources. The textbook can seem daunting, but focus on the terms and you'll learn a lot about a wide variety of subjects.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is super boring and hard to sit through. You must go to class to get notes and have to go to recitation.

    Course highlights:

    You learn a lot about industrial revolution and Europe!

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    You do read a lot and write several in class assignments that suck.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course if you enjoy a professor who is traditional but quirky at the same time. The class is not terribly boring, and you could possibly find you pulling out your phone to dial 911 when he climbs on top of tables to prove a point. I would not recommend this course if you have a predisposition towards essays. Powerpoints are not used in the class, and you are expected to take your own notes. Attendance is not mandatory, but if you miss, you'll be missing valuable information that will be present on the test. The discussion section is basically mandatory, do not miss it, counts towards your final grade.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to take notes that I did not have to copy straight from a powerpoint prompt. I learned that without the powerpoints, I listened more carefully to the lectures, which ultimately saved me time while studying when I realized I remembered certain terms and ideas from lecture.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    GO TO CLASS. GO TO DISCUSSION. I cannot stress enough how important it is in this course to attend class. Key terms THAT WILL BE ON THE TEST are mentioned, and while he posts the lecture outlines online, not all the terms on the outline will be important, so you can either study all of them or the ones covered in class. He will not put any terms on the test that are not covered in class.
