    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Course information was interesting, but professors teaching methods made this class somewhat painful. Material was interesting and easy enough to learn, but professor graded and held assignments to an upper division standard, which was odd considering this is a 100 level course

    Course highlights:

    Covers over 1700 years of western history in just 15 weeks of the semester. Learned a fair bit about womens role in different time periods in history. Went into depth about religion as well.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Need the sourcebook but not the textbook. Quizzes on the sourcebook material every week.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you are a big history fan then this class is for you. Going through this class, its going to be a lot of information to retain for the whole semester. You definitely have to read the chapters before each class because when Sarah Lynch use PowerPoint, its very vague. For example, there would be one slide that says Alexander the great. She would talk and talk and talk about him, So you have to listen carefully.

    Course highlights:

    I really didn't gain any information for this course because it's not towards my major or anything I'm going to do in the future.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    MAKE SURE YOU READ THE CHAPTERS BEFORE CLASS AND DON'T BE AFRAID TO ASK QUESTIONS!!
