    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Humanities involved lots of history and prehistoric stories which I am not the biggest fan of. Although taking this class has brought an immense interest toward prehistories. During class we learn the different types of building and the reasons why it was created the way it is, my professor finds interesting facts about the prehistoric time and makes the class very interesting.

    Course highlights:

    One of the many stories I learned in my Humanities class is the story of the Minoans and the bulls. This story begins with a king named Minos that found an interest in a bull he saw and wanted to take it home to keep. Although the gods did not want him taking a creature from nature and keeping it at home and they made his wife, Pasiphae, fall in love with the bull. The queen and the bull made love and created a half-human, half-bull and created a minotaur. The son of Aegeus finally kills the minotaur after many years.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Watch videos and use other sources to learn of stories and think about memorizing the definitions because the help a lot.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for people interested in humanities, but I'm not so sure if humanities is what was being taught. Learning about art aspects such as line and shading, this was 75% of the class, and it lost my interest.

    Course highlights:

    I felt it was interesting to learn about the older cultures and to learn about the progression from the Mesopotamian worlds to the Greek and Romans. It was interesting to learn about the cultural aspects during the different time periods, such as the role of women and the position of religion in each culture.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    The way this course is taught is weekly chapters with study guides to fill out, each week progressing to a new culture or era. Although the professor could be better, or a different professor overall, this course will make you work to pass.
