    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course even if you are not interested in anthropology and archaeology. The professor gives a great deal amount of information about the places you learn about and Shepardson even talks about the experience he has had among his years travelling. There is not a boring day and as long as you attend class you will not be left behind.

    Course highlights:

    The main highlight of this course with this specific professor is that he gives all his students the opportunity to travel. Not a long distance but there is two day trips and one over night trip in the travel ed club, which, in fact, all his students are automatically a member of without having to pay the $5 fee. I learned more about life of the past and how we became who we are as a society and what to do to change how we go about our future.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to attend class. This professor gives two options to his students, you are either a weekly person or an exam person. A weekly person takes a quiz every week and an exam person just takes the exams. I was personally a weekly person and earned an A in the class overall. As long as you attend class and actually study and do what is asked of you, you will pass the class. It is up to you how easy or hard the class can be.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It's a great intro course into anthropology, and how cultures and civilizations develop. We explored many different regions, and how these effected how these cultures lived. As well, we focused on the technologies that these cultures had mastered, and how we can learn from them in the present day.

    Course highlights:

    I certainly gained a more thorough knowledge of the many different cultures that have existed, how they lived, as well as how some of these cultures and civilizations failed, leading to their demise.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell students to always write notes during the lectures- there is so much great info that will certainly come up on any pop quizzes or exams. As well, be proactive and do the reading ahead of time, then read over it the night before. Certain things will be important and if you are rushing the assignments, you can lose points.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested in learning about the history of ancient civilizations. It is a very insightful class that discusses interesting concepts about the old and new world.

    Course highlights:

    I feel like I gained a better understanding of the origin of humanity and how human civilizations have evolved overtime.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    At times the class lectures will appear very dry and uninteresting, but I recommend paying close attention to the material being discussed. Since all the material that the professor is going through will be on both the online quizzes and the exams.
