Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course as Prof. Whalen constantly engages students, no matter how boring you perceive the subject of history.
Students engage in a historical analysis of the North Atlantic World before 1750, specifically through a survey of Western Europe and the Mediterranean world during the period 300-1500, exploring events such as the decline of the Roman Empire and how such events formed the world then and now.

Advice for students:
To succeed in this course, seek help by going to office hours. The TA's were very helpful with each paper in sorting through the large amounts of reading to write a clear and concise paper. Be sure to attend lecture and take thorough notes for a midterm and final exam. This won't be difficult to achieve as Professor Whalen is very comical and engaging throughout the lectures.
