    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is one of the easier ECON required classes if math isn't your strong suit. It's more geared towards a historical/humanities perspective and only really has reading and writing assignments.

    Course highlights:

    This course mainly covers the economic trends of 19th century America. It begins at the revolutionary war and does not extend past the civil war era. The course goes in-depth into the major industrial/economic events that changed America.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class isn't too difficult as long as you complete the required reading. The page assignments are hefty but not ridiculously long. Also, it helps if your essay writing skills are sharp.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    My answer is based on the material covered in the class. Despite the hopes I had, the course is highly repetitive and is rather dry to those that aren't passionate about the subject matter. Although it is possible to do well in the course, the long lectures are a hindrance to learning. If there's another course to take, take it.

    Course highlights:

    I did gain valuable experience by taking this course. My attention span has broadened and my ability to perform with the pressure of knowing I have only five grades has increased. Specific to the course I gained a deeper understanding of the economic background of the U.S. and how certain political and economic climates manifested themselves. For anyone looking to get a better understanding of the U.S.'s history, this course is highly recommended.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attend lecture diligently since his exams place a strong focus on what he says as opposed to what the text may have said.
