    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Introduction to Greek and Roman Culture is not exactly what I expected it to be. While there is plenty of history and archeological information to grasp, some of the content is not preferred. My lecturer is very ardent about this course, and he explains each topic and subtopic with extensive examples. He encourages us to read the main source material and set our minds in that particular time period in order for us to better understand what the people of that day were thinking and how they reacted to certain events.

    Course highlights:

    Apart from what was said above, I have greatly enjoyed this class. We are assigned many short writing prompts and discussion prompts which we answer in class while with our individual groups. Through this class, I am learning to think more openly and thoroughly about the subjects being taught.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are not the strongest writer, consider meeting with a writing tutor, as this class is writing-based. Also, take as many notes in class as possible and contribute to the discussion, as they will help you later write your prompts, narratives, and the final paper. Overall, do not be afraid to ask questions or seek help other places. This class is supposed to be open for challenges while providing a safe environment to do so.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I really enjoyed this course. The lectures can be long but very informative and fun. Professor Wolpert makes class enjoyable and interesting. I would recommend taking this course.

    Course highlights:

    What I learned from this course was about the culture and everyday life style of the Romans and Greeks. I bettered my writing skill by writing many papers for this course and also how to work as a group. I got better at talking and expressing my thoughts to others. I wish I would have prepared myself better before the course by reading the books introduction because it seems like a lot of work at first.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Advice I would give students considering this course would be that there is a lot of writing assignments. The writing assignments can be easy but there are some that do require a lot of time and you have to do some research.
