    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is unexpectly interesting! It is a very challenging course! Lots of writing! Tow ten page papers gave me a lot of experience researching and I learned a great deal about the scientific approach to history! Isaiah Berlin's book was interesting as well! F. Schuler is a unique individual! He's kind of hard to follow sometimes but his passion is something to be admired!

    Course highlights:

    Research practices! Histories of many great histories weee highlighted! We had many brief philosophical discussions about the readings we were given! Most class time is discussion and lecture on the readings for the week! This class has the potential to be greatly rewarding if you do the reading assigned and take part in the discussions! Start your research early on to get the most out the paper! We learn to write in Chicago Manual of Style format! We were also asked to explore our own styles and interests and write a manifesto about what history is to us! This was harder than expected if you are not sure of the direction you want to go in your studies! F. Schuler, the professor is very enthusiastic about history and his excitement can be inspiring and hilarious at times! I ultimately learned the importance of scientific writing and research, while improving my own skills of time management as I spent a great deal of time on editing and a bilbliography according to Chicago Manual of Style! Exploring your own limitations and learning to improve your skills is what a class should do for you and this class has succeeded in doing this!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to start your research paper asap! Spend time on gathering primary sources and take a look at Chicago Manual of Style to learn how to cite and use footnotes and bibliography! Gather sources, gather sources. Schuler is a unique professor and at times it is hard to understand where he is going with his discussions, but class participation is essential in getting the most out of the class!
