    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would have found this class to be more enriching if it had been taught as if students did not know how to do proper research and how to put together essays and reports. We as working adults need to know these life skills but how can we learn if we are just thrown into project after project without proper teaching? so many american students don't know how to do essays! so many don't know the first thing about research! so teach us! don't rush us. If you are someone who already knows how to do all of this then this class will be a breeze and you should easily ace it. For me personally I had not been in school for 3 years and high school in 4. So I did not remember how to properly type in word and excel and I needed help but not get it.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to not know how to do proper research, or at least not the way my professor wanted. I wish I had learned but I get to take this class again next year so hopefully I will! I have faith.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Ask questions- look up how to do college level research. It helps to be decent at writing also. Think outside the box. One project had been to research three hot topics and argue your opinions from a christian point view. Start thinking of hot world topics that gets everyone heated.
