    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Grady is an excellent lecturer and is easy to understand. His class is relatively challenging but made me a more competitive student and a better writer.

    Course highlights:

    The material in this course extended from the civil war through the cold war. Dr. Grady's coverage about the Cold War was the most interesting to me as many history courses neglect to mention any information about that subject whatsoever.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is especially important to record Dr. Grady's lectures. To effectively study, I would listen to my recording of the lectures and type them out in their entirety. This ensured that I was not missing any information while I prepared for exams.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this course because no matter how good you are at writing, nor how good you are at presenting the material that you know, nor how hard you work, this professor is determined to make this course as challenging as possible. It is almost as if he wants to make you think you progress over the period of the course due to his teaching. He starts off failing you, and you only progress by about .05% over the period of the course. In order to be remotely successful, you have to visit him in his office.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about very important events that happened before 1865. The highlight would definitely be learning about colonization in the American colonies, and learning about the development of civilization soon after.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to visit him in his office. He will be more lenient if he knows of the effort that you are putting in and if he knows you on a personal level. Truly value his lecture outlines. Print every single one of them off, and guide your studying from this outline. He teaches based off of this outline. Study, study, study, study, STUDY! It is imperative that you read the given assigned readings and spend a lot of your time studying for this course. Do not wait til the night before or two or three nights before the test to start studying.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Smith is an incredible teacher and has an evident love of history!

    Course highlights:

    I do NOT love history, but going through this course gave me an appreciation of some of the more interesting stories that aren't usually taught in school.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay close attention to the lectures and make sure to use your best work when writing your Primary Source Analysis. Professor Smith is extremely helpful and open to discussing things to help you succeed - use her help!
