    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course. This is mostly because Dr. Boyle is a fair professor who makes the course really engaging.

    Course highlights:

    I demonstrated my knowledge of the global intellectual and cultural trends of modern civilization. I identified different values and worldviews, with an emphasis upon understanding relationships between government, religion, art, and science and between the individual, society, and the global economy. I wrote well-supported, organized, and clearly articulated arguments using both primary and secondary sources and correct documentation style. I also critically analyzed religious and secular philosophies, power structures, and their meaning in the modern world.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    From my experience, you didn't always have to do the reading, so don't sweat it if you have to scale back on how much time you spend on homework for this course. Just attend the class and participate as much as you can. As a literature major, this class wasn't too tough for me.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is required to graduate from UNCA, so it is necessary. However, I thought it was the best of the required humanities classes! Professor Heston is great. She challenges you to dig deeper into the material to acquire your own individual response.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed the reading selections for this course. The authors were diverse, and I appreciated the focus on African American history and culture as well. Several of the lecturers were outstanding this semester as well. The speakers were engaging, and I gleaned a lot of information that was beneficial to my in class comprehension as well.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to read your butt off! The only way to keep a good grade in this course is to stay current on the readings. Don't forget to look at both the course moodle and the section moodle for information regarding assignments. Be mentally prepared to work hard starting from day one!

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is required, unfortunately. Everyone in every major must take these courses to graduate

    Course highlights:

    I learned that there are many different ways to look at the same situation and that we must be tolerant, understanding and open to ideas and concepts that may make us uncomfortable.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class. I know it may be awful, but it is important that you attend in order to get the information required to do well on the exams.
