    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This has been one of my favorite classes so far at Berkeley. Not only were Prof. Beecher's lectures very easy to understand, but he also seemed to care for his students. For example, if one person introduced himself/herself for the first time, he would remember that person's name for the rest of the semester. The environment he provided us with while in the lecture halls was professional, yet comfortable. Although he does not allow the use of cellphones (you will get thrown out of the class if you are caught using a phone), I felt that it was his way of showing that there is a time to learn and a time to catch up on social media.

    Course highlights:

    I learned much of world history based on primary and secondary sources from all sorts of people from around the world. Instead of focusing on just a textbook, I found that reading these primary sources gave me a better understanding of how certain things came to be based on the time period certain situations occurred.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You definitely need to do the readings!! Doing that helped me a lot with understanding what was going on in the lectures.
