    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it gives a very good general overview of modern international history. Taking students through both World Wars and the Great Depression, almost up until the present, this course teaches the basics about history that everyone should understand in order to more fully comprehend the state of the world in which we live today.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course for me was the final day of class, in which the students, in groups, gave oral presentations to the class. I truly enjoyed this activity because it was a big change from simply listening to a lecture or being tested as we had in all the previous classes. It was entertaining and enlightening to see what ways in which the groups chose to express themselves, with examples ranging from a rap performance to a PowerPoint presentation. I learned to work with people through taking this class, as I had to work with a group to put together the aforementioned presentation, as well as other parts of a related project.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This is a class you will likely need to take as a required class at some point in your college career. This is, at least, the case at Siena College in Loudonville, New York where I attend school. With that being said, it is not to difficult as it is a 101 level class, though you may find it to be time consuming. This was one of my more time consuming classes as far as homework went, but it was well worth it. If you take this class enjoy the opportunity to get to know and work with other students within it.
