    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Isaak made the class worth it. She's funny, and is very lenient in her grading without being a pushover. She recognizes that this is a GE class, and doesn't require too much from her students because she knows how busy and involved we are in our majors.

    Course highlights:

    I liked the non-traditional assignments and being able to participate in class discussions in new and fun ways.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you need your Civ 1 and Civ 2 credits, take from Isaak if you can! Always do the reading, and participate in class. Study the material and you'll be fine on the test.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class teaches history in a fun, engaging way! You learn to analyze art, music, and works of literature all while learning about their artists, composers, and authors and the circumstances which led them to creating their masterpieces. As long as you regularly review the pieces, you'll learn them in no time.

    Course highlights:

    Art pieces, artists, music compositions, composers, literary texts, and authors from Prehistoric art time to the Renaissance. Its super fun to see references to several of these well-known (and not so well-known) works of art in social media, movies, and modern texts. Making connections to what I learned in the course when I wasn't in class or doing homework was the best part.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    review the works of art, music, and texts that you need to know regularly. Not every day, but at least look them over once every three or four days. Names, dates, and patterns stick in your head when you've gone over them enough before the tests. I personally used quizlet to help me study, I made my own sets because they have an image database with all the artworks that you'll learn.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class to individuals who may not have the deepest desire to learn about humanities, but must take the class and still want to get something lasting from taking this course. Although there are a lot of readings, Professor Rimassach has your best interest as her top priority. That does not mean that your best interest can be to not learn anything, but if you go in with an open mind and willing to learn then you will have a great time taking this class and learning really neat things.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course, were the stories that you read both in and out of class to prepare for tests. I was very interested and learned a lot about the early greeks and the early romans. Because that is something that peaks my interest, I thought that in reading the history of these people and learning of their beliefs and of their culture was a huge highlight.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would give the advice that if you are not willing to do your homework and your out of class readings which are many. Than this is not the course for you. This is a course with a lot to do, but in doing that, the Professor gives you the grade that you deserve. Advice is be willing to do your readings and study hard and you will do great in this course.
