    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Buchanan was by far my favorite professor. He is so knowledgeable in the subject and he goes with the flow of the class. Some days we had some great discussion that even spilled over into political discussions for countries around the world and current events. His class was by far my favorite and he is a fabulous professor. Take his class!

    Course highlights:

    I was already familiar with most if not all countries and capitals because geography has always been one of my favorite subjects, but this doesn't mean I didn't learn anything new. In fact, Professor Buchanan taught me many things I hadn't learned in my junior high and high school classes. He would discuss different physical features in countries and how they came to be there or he would discuss the weather in certain countries and how that effects the food they eat. He would teach us about the cultures and how each country advertises themselves for tourism differently. Our final project was to pick a county and make a power point. We had about ten specific facts or questions we had to cover in our power point, but aside from that it was up to us to throw in anything we found intersting. Something I liked was that he made us include the exchange rate and what some common items cost in our country's currancy in comparision to the US dollar.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it seriously. I felt like the class was easy, but again that could have been because I already formed a love for the subject. Geography is a subject that is sadly not valued as much as it should be in the United States. Some of you who are attending school to be buisnessmen even should pay attention to geogrpahy becuase it comes in handy to understand time zones, cultures, and other aspects to places around the world.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it was key to understanding not only the cultures but the placements of all of the countries and states.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a vast knowledge of the world's countries, culturally and geographically.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    When you are studying for tests, go online and play children's geography games to help you with the location of the countries and states.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was an elective, and not crucial for my major or degree, but I absolutely loved it. Professor Buchanan has a passion for world travel and you can clearly see it when he teaches about all the places he ahs been to. The only thing to take into consideration, is that you will have to memorize all the countries in the world, so you need to be able to memorize well.

    Course highlights:

    I gained an appreciation for the world as a whole. I already love different cultures, but when you learn about all of the countries together, like in this course, it puts all the puzzle piece ideas you have about the world into a single, put together picture. It put my love for other cultures, people groups, and travel on fire and inspired my switch to Sociology.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are looking for a easy class, this may not be the right class for you, But if you are looking for a fun and interesting class that will in general shape you into a more round human being, then I definitely suggest this class!
