    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you are in a RN-BSN or RN-MSN program, I would not recommend this course. The time commitment is far too extensive. Between the reading materials, discussion posts, and papers, I would not recommend this particular course.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoy history and have learned a good bit.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Complete the extra credit in the beginning of the course. Work on assignments well before the due date.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Education institutions in the U.S. do not go into depth on the social and political atmospheres of foreign countries. In an ever globalizing environment with increasing tensions against Russia and North Korea, I believe that students should be exposed to the histories of how the present day countries came to be and why. This class can do just that. The progression of Russia from a slave institution, to communism under Lenin and Stalin, to the Putin's present regime is an interesting and enlightening experience concerning politics outside the U.S. Under Babiracki, students can learn all of the fun things about Russian history that high school classes skim over--the pragmatic, realistic writing of Anton Chekhov for one, the firsthand experience of WWII reporter Vasily Grossman for another. In this class, you don't just memorize dates and names. You live through the gritty hardships of Russia through the readings and films.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a new appreciation for history and the hardship of man. Before, I had chalked Russia up to a large Communistic empire that fell into the wrong hands, but after, I learned so much more about the country, especially concerning the attitudes of the people. A highlight in the course happened straight from the beginning, actually. We were assigned to read a collection of short stories: "About Love" by Anton Chekhov. The rawness of emotion, the pragmatic, persevering attitude, and the strong sense of family in the words caught me off guard because suddenly, the citizens of Russia were not just faceless names on paper. They were real people with real problems, trying to make the most of what they had in the harsh environment. Some sought to carve a brighter future through socialism and Communism to some disastrous effects, true, but despite that, the Russian people have modernized themselves. They have become competitive with the West through their perseverance. I learned so much from this course through the professor, Dr. Babiracki. I believe that this course was made all the better because the teacher has a true passion and thorough knowledge on the subject, which made learning about the history of Russia--history, of all stereotypical boring things--a real pleasure.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to read the texts given to you! Also, when Dr. Babiracki is lecturing, make sure to write down anything he puts on the blackboard--it will be useful for the essays. Lastly, when reading the text, try to mark down the names of important figures because they will probably be on the quiz. If you do not like to read, this class will most likely not be for you. However, if you do like to read, but average between a C and a B on the quizzes, keep in mind that the essays will do much to boost your grade. Dr. Babiracki is always helpful with creating the essays, and they were pretty easy to get a good grade on for that A.

    | Would not recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    would not recommend d/t difficulty and amount of expected work

    Course highlights:

    I have just started this course, so any help, notes, advice would help. I have been more confused than anything and the amount of expected course work is ridiculous for it being an online class. Any info for this class would be greatly appreciated. Email me: [email protected] Thanks again.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Take this class at a local college. You would benefit more from it than taking it from this specific professor.
