    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would reccomend this course because even though it covers a vast amount of history in such a short amount of time, I truly learned a great deal that I didn't know prior to taking this course. Also, the way Dr. Rutenburg teaches the course is extremely informative and interesting.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the two term papers. I learned the history of western civilization in further detail than I'd ever learned before. I learned about the different empires as well as later on the great monarchs of the early modern era.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You must read the book to be successful in this course. There are quizzes every week to address how well you read the book (some of which have detailed questions) I would recommend taking notes while reading to ensure you can later reflect on what you learned to study for the quizzes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Maccari-Clayton teaches the course to understand history is a human experience. History is about the choices our ancestors made. They didn't know what the outcome would be. This look at history increased my love for history.

    Course highlights:

    Debates as historical characters like Cicero. We would be assigned a role as a historical figure, then we would debate a crisis in class. Hand's on experience to history.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to speak and write. A huge portion of the class grade is what and how you say things in debate.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Definitely a challenging course, but good if you love history. It will take a lot of effort to get an A

    Course highlights:

    Dr. Gueller was very into what he was teaching about, which helped a lot in respect to keeping students interested.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    GO TO CLASS AND DISCUSSIONS. Read the textbook, novel and discussion chapters to stay on top of things.
