    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was about the history of the Soviet Union. The class mostly focused on Ronald Suny's book "The Soviet Experiment", we learned about the fall of the tsarist state, the Bolshevik revolution of 1917, the great Stalinists terror of the 1930s, Stalin's death and the great economic stagnation that follow, all the way to the period of great reform starting with Khrushchev and continuing with Gorbachev with glasnost and perestroika. I would highly recommend this​ course to anyone who wants to learn more about world history.

    Course highlights:

    One of the greatest highlights of this course was the subject on the Bolsheviks' goal of re-engineering the human soul. Secondly throughout most of the semester, we focused on Stalin and the strategies he used to consolidate his power, such as systematically getting rid of his political opponents. Finally at the end of the course, we focused on the definition of the word genocide. What does it mean? What groups should be included? and the reason as to why is still a highly debatable topic.​

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise any student considering on taking this course to keep up with the pace of the class. As long as you are doing the reading and writing your research paper when you are supposed to you will love this class. It is a very manageable workload and an extremely interesting topic.
