    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class if you are passionate about history. Because there's a lot of it. I wouldn't recommend it if you're just looking to fill a credit.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the ancient civilizations, their rises and falls and the various battles that took place.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    STUDY AND READ YOUR TEXT BOOK! The tests are heavily based off memorizing info from your notes and from the text.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Very interesting course and Professor makes it interesting and approachable. He ties in the relevance of past events into today's world. He is very transparent on expectations for the class, essay prompts and guidelines, test study guides, and extra credit opportunities.

    Course highlights:

    Understanding of prior civilizations and things we learned from them and things that were kept and things that were dropped. The Code of Hammurabi was a foundational document for western law and principles, many of which are still in place today.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up-the path to success is laid out transparently by the Professor

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Spaulding's lectures are fast paced and almost everything that he mentions in class can be crucial to your next essay. Assignments include 3 essays (1 essay is the final), a book report, and map assignments. Seems fairly reasonable. However, Dr. Spaulding does not grade anything. He lets his TA's do all the grading and they are very picky. For a map assignment, you can get points off (and by points off, I mean earn a C) if you have a city 1 millimeter away from where they think it should be. Although there is tough grading, if asked in class, Dr. Spaulding will allow a 3x5 note card for your essay written in class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that visiting the TA's office regularly and making sure they get to know your name/face, can pay off in the long run. Since the TA's graded everything for the course, it was necessary to get on their good side and ask questions about essays and assignments.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Visit it TA's office hours regularly and go to every single lecture, even though you may not feel like it, it pays off in the end.
