    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it allows one to broaden their perspective of the world as a whole. Studying various cultures and civilizations allows one to see that we are all people trying to do what is right and do the best we can with the technology and resources that we have. You learn just how we have ended up the way we have and how various leaders have influenced the world so much. Please take this course!

    Course highlights:

    I loved learning about the Medieval Ages and how that time period caused great reform and questioning to occur among the religious population. They began to question about religion and God and what was truth, ultimately leading to the Reformation and Renaissance Era. Our world today has been greatly influenced by the Medieval Ages, it's time we learned more about it!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise anyone taking this course to really put in the effort to study and learn the concepts and not blow of this course thinking that it is too easy or can be overlooked.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    In my personal opinion, this class was difficult. The study of ancient history was something that I found that I did not enjoy, and I struggled to get through the work. Unless you enjoy this particular era/genre of history, I would not necessarily recommend the class.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were the class lectures. The readings were somewhat dry, but the way that Professor Felt spoke about the topics in class helped to make the course a little more fun.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up with the readings. There is a lot of reading with this class and subsequent essays/quizzes. Falling behind would be detrimental to keeping up with assignments and achieving a good grade.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is great for learning about ancient history. Stratford is funny sometimes and good at staying on-task with his lectures. You can tell he knows his stuff.

    Course highlights:

    One thing I enjoyed learning about in this course is how different groups of people interacted throughout history. "To 1500" is a lot of years, so when learning about all of it in the same semester, it's easier to pick out patterns and long-term effects of pivotal decisions.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook. Professor Stratford teaches to the textbook and knowing what it says is vital to your success in the course. Read the primary sources that go with the chapter. They will be on the test. Professor Stratford holds regular office hours, and I recommend going and talking with him; it's really helpful. The TA's have hours as well, and they can help with any questions you might have.
