    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The subject content is very fascinating and is presented in a way that is relevant to our society to today.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course is definitely Prof. Jones. Not only is he hilarious, he is an excellent teacher who is easy to understand and encourages student participation. He brings history to life. I learned that history is never in the past, but is always present today.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always do the reading assigned. They will greatly benefit you when taking quizzes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was an engaging class that I felt did a good job of highlighting themes that hadn't been followed in other history classes I have taken. Professor Mason had fun lectures, with interesting ideas and connections I hadn't seen before. Take notes, and they can help you on the essay, which is VERY nice because then you aren't trying to find a quote in one of the four or five books used in the course.

    Course highlights:

    We learned about the impacts of religion, slavery and hierarchy on American History. Professor Mason connected LDS gospel topics with US History, which was an interesting spin I hadn't seen in my public school education. I appreciated that he was able to teach the impact of religion on the founding of the US. It was cool to see how hierarchy was so vital to everything, and then it wasn't so much after the Revolutionary War.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the assigned reading, and don't forget about the reading responses. Be an active part of the discussions, even if all you do is comment once a week.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Mason makes history come alive. It's a tough class but well worth it.

    Course highlights:

    This course used a lot of primary source documents which was great. The 2 main themes were religion and race.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you do the readings and readings responses.
