    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a good history course to take if you have a bad memory. Dr. Gillis focuses more on the big picture themes and trends rather than nit-picky details and dates. It is not, however, a breeze-through-no-effort class. It requires keeping up with the readings and attending the lectures.

    Course highlights:

    The class was overall interesting and engaging because you could tell that the professor was interested in it which makes it easier for the students to be interested in it. He also focused on some parts of history that may generally be looked over, so students were able to get some new insights and perspectives.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read, read, read, and do not procrastinate anything, or you will not be successful. GO TO CLASS. Attendance is a part of your grade, and you will be docked a letter grade after 3 absences from either lecture or discussions.
