    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is one of the more interesting classes I have ever taken. It starts at the beginning of time and takes you on a journey through every corner of the world until the fifteenth century. The course material is extremely interesting and gratifying, and Professor Jennifer Dilley does a wonderful job at presenting the material. I would definitely recommend taking this class to anyone, not just history majors.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this class for me was learning about the unification of China under the Qin dynasty and the First Emperor of China, Shihuangdi. The architectural feats that the Qin dynasty were able to achieve with the terracotta army and tomb of Shihuangdi rival that of the Great Pyramids at Giza. It is a truly remarkable feat that is still being unveiled and studied today.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best advice I can give is simple; attend class. The information that you are going to need to pass this class is going to be given during the in-class lectures. The book used in this course is full of great information that helps learning the concepts easier, but the lectures are the real meat and potatoes of this course.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It was truly interesting to look at the founding of civilization, and the causes which still influence societies today. The class was challenging, as looking into the past is like lookin through murky waters, but it was insightful and unendingly interesting.

    Course highlights:

    I loved the discussion more than anything else. Dr. Carr-Shanahan is very informed, and my classmates viewed events many different ways. The perspective of ancient people was fascinating as well, especially when dealing with issues we still have today.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take the opportunity to write the term paper. It allows you to delve deeply into a culture or a time period to really see what was going on. It takes a lot of time, and can be extremely frustrating, but in the end you have something more than a grade to look back at and share with others.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Dilley was a great at explaining the different topics in World Civilizations. She made the notes easy to follow and it made me want to know even more.

    Course highlights:

    We went over the different civilizations throughout early history, including Rome, Greece, Chinese dynasties, and India.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggeat you take very good notes during her PowerPoint presentations. All the answers to the test come from there not the book. I didn't even use the book throughout the course.
