    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Of all honesty, I wasn't excited about Western Culture at all (Roman History). However the structure of the class (especially with Prof. McEachnie) allowed us not to be bombarded by dates and names, but however important themes and the analysis of such themes in modern day.

    Course highlights:

    Western Culture built upon itself, getting deeper and deeper as you learned about another era, however it was not reliant on that. Roman Culture weaves itself through our own society and as what you learn in class builds upon itself, you also start to realize the effects of the Roman world upon your own, and that detachment from class and that epiphany sort of makes in interesting as you differentiate whats different from today than how it was previously.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class and take good notes. You probably don't even have to take that good of notes just write it down. They tend to talk a lot about the topics you'll need to know as well as link them to each other, so as long as your notes jump start your memory, you'll be able to study well. Also if you do need help, go to the review sessions the teacher assistants hold because they will go over topics you need in detail.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was amazingly in-depth with the history behind the Jewish culture. Dr. Thiede has mastered the art of lecture speaking. She was able to capture the attention of the entire hall by simply speaking about what she believed in. One can easily see how important this history is to her. Learning about ancient beliefs and how each religion is intertwined was fascinating because of the way she taught it. Demons in ancient literature couldn't be more fun.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a knowledge how the Jewish community was seen and treated throughout history. We talked about the Hebrew Bible a lot and how it influenced the Christian Bible. Demons, ideology, Greek philosophy, and the connection between them all was a big look into this course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be thorough with your notes. Pay attention to all the details given in lecture. Go to the study sessions. Be open to what you hear, it may be against your own beliefs.
