    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it. Though his tests are challenging, you will dive deeper into the Old Testament because of it.

    Course highlights:

    You will gain a deeper understanding of the background and the reason for the Old Testament. You will learn why it is still relevant to us today and you will learn how to apply its concepts and ideas to life today.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Actually apply yourself to this course and don't just go through it because it's required. Put the effort in and try to learn and this class will be beneficial to you.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Hawkins is a great professor, even if he tends to ramble on occasion and place too many grade points on attendance. I would recommend him because he is the only history teacher to ever teach in such a way that I could retain information like names and dates.

    Course highlights:

    I gained the skill of close-reading. He gave quizzes over each chapter, which were fairly involved. I had to read very closely in order to dow well on these quizzes. I learned the most about the timeline of the Old Testament; especially the fact that there are plenty of time-related things in the Old Testament that we do not know for sure.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to read before every class, and make sure you are not tired during the time you choose. It may be easy to doze off in this class so pick a time when you are feeling energized.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a required course at Carson-Newman. The professor is very informative, and he makes the classroom more entertaining. Although I am not religious, he made learning about Christianity tolerable. While in the classroom, I was fixated on the readings, and the amount of information that was given to me. I found myself paying more attention to the professor than taking down notes.

    Course highlights:

    The last paper that was assigned was my favorite part about the whole class. The assignment was to write a paper about 'What Jesus Means to Me'. Me not being religious, I was very confused about what to write until I talked to my professor. He explained, that even though I was not religious, I could explain the reasoning behind not being religious. It made me feel better about the classes I was attending, and it made it easier to write the paper. The professor understood my confusion, and was intrigued to learn why i was not religious.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Come prepared to class, and be prepared to take notes. There will be a lot of information given, and a lot will be interesting. Even if you are not religious, the course gives a lot of information about every day life, as well. Be ready to do reading assignments, and be ready to get confused about some things. That is alright, of course.
