    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    To understand how world civilizations developed and debate on how they will continue to do so is as fascinating as it is important. Especially now, in a time of globalization and renewed change, it is undoubtedly necessary to know why and how global politics and economies are important.

    Course highlights:

    In the course, the massive shifts in global power are examined and set beside modern knowledge of history, politics, economic structures, and human rights. Discussions about possible outcomes and eventful happenings dominate the learning process and give insight into the opinions and thoughts of your peers.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be thorough in your examinations and analysis of weekly topics and don’t shy away from writing too much. In history, you can rarely over-explain or analyze an issue. Prof. Crowley is a very in-depth teacher and appreciates visible effort. Be sure to include valuable and good sources and use critical thinking in forming your own opinion.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course offered a traditional learning experience of modern civilization from 1500 to present. The experience is up to the student to learn what you want from the course.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a relatively general understanding of the processes of modern civilization. I didn't find any particularly interesting points in the class, although I am not a history major, and I could see how others may enjoy the class more-so.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    There is a lot of writing in the course, and an intense study of Turabian Style notes and Bibliography, which is incredibly specific.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I enjoyed the class but this professor was very difficult. I would recommend taking this course with a different professor.

    Course highlights:

    I got to learn about early civilizations. I focused on early Egyptian civilization for our final project.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Work on this a little bit everyday. This is one class that you can not wait until the end of the week to do everything and still get a good grade. I found that I would work on this a couple hours each night.
