    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it is as thorough a study of world history and geography one can get in one semester without being a History major. The class provides so much detail and the professor is highly agreeable. It is impossible to come away from the class without knowledge about global history and geography.

    Course highlights:

    I realized after entering this course that I was almost completely ignorant about the entire world's geography, insomuch as nations are concerned, outside of North America, Western Europe, China, and Japan. After the class, and in the midst of it, I was able to confidently enter into conversation about global affairs while correctly citing geographic locations and events in history which directly affect the nation's current affairs- like the Kyber Pass bridging Pakistan to India, and identifying areas specifically associated with "culture hearth" history. I feel globally conscious and, honestly, the foreigners, from India and West Africa, that I've met have been surprised by my awareness of their nations issues and my sympathy. I recommend this course to anyone studying anything. Global History and Geography courses should be mandated in college curriculum, especially if it is under the tutelage of Dr. Maria Vecchio. A highlight of the course was that I actually completed a textbook from cover to cover in a class for once!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do it! Yes, it's in the wee early morning, and the work is not always interesting if the topic of an assignment is something you could care less about, like tourism or governance of the seas, but, overall, the reward is that feeling in which you actually feel that you've been to college and completed something. It gives you that "oh so sought for" feeling of "educatedness."

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Vecchio is a great professor. You can't help but learn a lot in her classes. She also varies the work, so you're never bored.

    Course highlights:

    You certainly learn a lot of geography. Before this course, I was only able to find a few countries on each continent; now I can pinpoint each and list defining characteristics. Additionally, I learned even more about various African countries due to the research papers we had to write.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to attend class and take notes. All of her tests are based on her lectures, which do not cover every topic in the textbook. Also, you have to really study the maps because they are a huge part of the tests. Don't try to get ahead with the regional issues, because she'll skip around a lot for which countries were actually doing.
