    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is a great intro to the Middle Ages. This course goes from the creation of the Greek city-states, though Roman history, to finally the political developments that took place that created most of the countries that are in present Europe. It allows students to reflect on how environmental factors, like overpopulation and the Black Death, and human conflict can shape how governments are run and nations are developed.

    Course highlights:

    The bulk of our time was focused on Roman history from its origins to finally the fall of the Byzantine Empire. We also spent extensive time on how Christianity impacted the Roman Empire, and the how the Papacy later influenced other rulers and nations.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell students that this course is not hard-hard, but you do need to put in effort by focusing on the lectures- write everything- and studying your notes. The textbook was not really necessary, but skimming it does add an extra layer of protection. This class is fun, if you enjoy history and really have a desire for it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Porter was encouraging, engaging, and very involved in the class and the students. She always made a concerted effort to help students who needed it via her office hours, appointments, offers to read drafts, study tips, and general questions about how people in the class were fairing. She genuinely loves her material and wants her students to succeed.

    Course highlights:

    I had already taken a VERY similar class in high school just before I took this one, so I didn't learn much more than I already had. But, I do feel this course was much more in-depth and involved with the texts and primary sources in the material. I learned more about the surrounding areas than I knew previously, but more than anything I gained good study habits and critical skills that will benefit me during the rest of my college experience.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take thorough notes- this class cannot be passed with out very detailed lecture notes. Be sure to stay caught up in the textbook reading, even if its just a once a week skim. Ask questions if confused, Professor Porter is more than willing to embellish and explain.
