    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course offers extremely interesting information about the Medieval period. The professor has done extensive research about this period, so she knows what she is talking about. However, her expertise does NOT make her set unrealistic goals for her students.

    Course highlights:

    I personally enjoyed learning about several Popes of the period. We also talked about several techniques used during ancient wars that I found really exciting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you show up to class, pay attention, and do the readings, you will be fine.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to those who enjoy history and learning about the views of others. It is a writing and reading emphasized course, so this course is ideal for students who excel in those areas.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed learning about the views of those who lived in the medieval time period. From art to religion, you go in depth with the ideas of people from the years 100 to 1000. The most important lesson I learned was that you cannot judge the decisions and ideas of those from the past. Just because they were alive more than 1000 years ago doesn't mean that their decisions weren't justified during that time. It is a lesson that many need to learn in order to increase the knowledge that can be gained from the past.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I recommend always doing your readings and taking good notes based on what the instructor says, not what they put on the power point. It is important to write down what the professor speaks about each topic in order to get all of the information necessary. Doing your readings will ensure that you are prepared each class and can be engaged in the discussions.
