    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was an incredible and informative class that was very enjoyable. The professor is reasonable and friendly and makes even the boring parts so much fun to learn!

    Course highlights:

    World Civ I touches on Civilizations from pre-historic times to about halfway through history, focusing mostly on Europe as there wasn't a whole lot going on in other places. As well as learning basics, Dr. Skaggs teaches all kinds of interesting facts about each place and person. His projects and papers are well-balanced and go well with the reading. He is very fair and the class in generally enjoyable and informative. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone -- anyone willing to work hard.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to work! While nothing is overly difficult, everything is time consuming. be willing to take constructive criticism and be sure to ask if you have questions.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is easy to listen to during lectures (it's not a snooze fest), and does NOT assign boring assignments! He is VERY good at simplifying complex events, to where it is easy to understand what's actually going on.

    Course highlights:

    Definitely earning good grades on all of the exams! I learned more about the world and it's history then I ever did throughout my high school courses.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get ready to read. Reading is essential for learning anything, especially the history of our world. It's not anything difficult to understand, but unless you're not a history buff (like myself), then you're going to have to get used to reading this stuff.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Jenkins is pretty tough, but you'll learn a lot. She gives very little homework(except lots of reading) but is very exacting.

    Course highlights:

    This course focused heavily on how life was in the time period. She didn't put much stock in remembering dates and put a lot more in knowing the material.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Follow every instruction she gives you TO THE LETTER. Do ALL your reading and don't get behind. If she offers extra credit, take it, you'll probably need it. Practice writing fast because she talks very quickly and expects you to get down most of it in your notes. And when prepping for your test STUDY THOSE NOTES HARD. Also don't miss class, it affects your grade.
