    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is very lecture heavy and requires a lot of handwritten notes. There are only two tests and 4 quizzes so they weigh heavy on your average. Very hard quizzes.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about Native Americans culture and rituals. The highlight of the class was when we learned about slavery and got to watch different documentaries on the South.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Record the lectures, because he talks fairly fast. Study hard for the quizzes, they can either make or break you. The midterm and final are a both cumulative so keep all of your notes!

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Loved the material. The professor is so enthusiastic while teaching. He has a passion for history and it definitely showed when he taught. I loved learning in this class.

    Course highlights:

    Dr. Bourdon is so enthusiastic when he teaches. He is just a sponge of knowledge. We learned so much about the building of the early United States, civil rights, and slavery.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the books. Don't wait until last minute to do the papers.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class to anyone who truly enjoys history. Professor is very knowledgeable and passionate about the subject. She gives you all the materials and info needed for the tests, which were not extremely difficult.

    Course highlights:

    The biggest thing I learned in the class was how to analyze pieces of different primary sources and being able to tie it all in with the information from lecture. You must practice this skill to do very well on exams.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to lecture and take notes. Not all of the materials will be on the powerpoint that is uploaded online. Vital information
