    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Although I am not a history major, I absolutely fell in love with this class. Dr. Wood explicitly, and emotionally explained various works to us such as: The Aeneid, The Illiad, and Augustine's Confessions. Learning about other cultures and literature that went along with them really opened my views on history, and how it is important that we study it.

    Course highlights:

    I especially enjoyed analyzing Augustine's Confessions in Dr. Wood's class. It broadened my mind on how to view devotion such as Augustine did. It was quite interesting learning how Augustine viewed God, and how the Church used to use his book as part of devotion in old times.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to take good notes on the lecture part of it, and get involved in discussion. Dr. Wood really enjoys it when students get into discussion with him about the subject that he loves so much. Also do not be afraid to go to his office if you ever have any questions and want to know more about whatever topic.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The class is hard. It doesn't matter who your professor is, the class is simply difficult and unfortunately required. I wouldn't take Schlosser if I had the choice, though since he is rather boring and usually unprepared for the class. Don't expect an easy course.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight had to be the kind of history we were learning. Ancient history is very interesting, and despite the difficulty of the class, the material was at least good.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to read. Schedule out time in each day to break up the reading. Sometimes you'll have to read an entire epic in a week along with your other classes and if you don't commit to a schedule, you'll probably be pulling an all-nighter trying to finish a novel you don't want to read.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was very interesting and kept my attention the entire three hour night class. Not everyone can teach a subject like this at night and keep me away, but Prof Arnwine is a very good storyteller and professor!

    Course highlights:

    We study a new book about every two weeks and each book holds its own new world. I love the way Arnwine brings each book to life!!!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are not very good with stories and understanding storytelling elements, it may be a bit tough for you. This is not a part of the course, but this knowledge helped me though it!
