    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recomend this course because it offers a lot of valuable historical information with great teaching.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to view history at a macro level. To see how culture changes as if it acts like an organism all its own.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book! Always read the material before you come into class.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it gives a new perspective on ancient and current history. I would also recommend the professor! His passion for the subject he teaches is obvious, and this makes the class very enjoyable.

    Course highlights:

    I gained an understanding about the world around us! Not just our planet, but about the history of the solar system and life itself. It felt like a biology class, but was based through history, making learning about it enjoyable to learn and read about.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I was given suggested reading for the course. I would recommend doing the reading, even if you skim it, before the lecture so you have a general idea of the topic and can go off of notes you took from both the lecture and reading.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class may seem easy because of the "101" in it's name, however, this class was one of the harder classes I have taken so far because of the amount of readings and lecture style. In this class all the notes come from vocal lectures, no power points that many are used to, and many readings. This makes it harder but also forces you to dig deep and understand the material yourself and understand it better in the long run.

    Course highlights:

    This class was very interesting once we got to the material, rather than just definitions of the eras in the beginning. However. with this particular professor the focus was mainly on Latin American civilizations rather than all of the world civilizations.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are planning on taking this course I would definitely make sure you are going to as many class lectures as possible, this is where a bulk of the material is and there's a chance you will be lost if you skip. Also be prepared for long reading assignments, although it may be easy to decide not to read, it is extremely beneficial for the course to read the articles. Finally, be prepare for an essay based class, being that most and homework assignments and exams are essays.
