    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course isn't really hard. The lectures are long, and you might suffer if you don't do the reading. However, it is the easiest and possibly most fascinating required Civ course to take (as long as you become actively engaged in the work).

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to think with non-linear creativity.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the reading. If you don't at LEAST do the reading, your exam grades will drastically suffer.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class generally because it really does force you to think outside the box if you take it seriously. Because that's difficult to find in a class, I wouldn't feel right giving it less than 4 stars It didn't get that fifth one for me largely because this class had more assignments and projects than any of my higher level classes. I don't believe a GE class should take more time and energy than a 400 level class. Still worth it, but I feel like that could have been toned down.

    Course highlights:

    The most interesting thing I learned was how historically important the mixing of cultures was to creativity and advancement of civilization. Turns out humans aren't as cool by themselves as they are when they're thrown together.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this class, you really just need to dedicate time to doing the assignments. none of the assignments are too difficult by themselves. If you dedicate 30 min a day, you'll be fine. Make sure to talk with people about your final project. I spent hours trying to come up with a cool idea, but it only took 10 min of talking with other people about it to figure out what I really wanted to do.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It was a great course! I learned a lot! When taking the test its mostly on people and facts, which can be difficult especially​ when it's a group of Romans.

    Course highlights:

    The Creative project was both fun and a little terrifying. When you have an idea for the project it's not a ​problem, but finding a unique project can take some brain digging.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the whole textbook! Its going to be on the tests.
