Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would only recommend this class if your are truly interested in history. While it is interesting, one of the books are hard to follow and read. There are a lot of reading and writing assignments, so if your aren't really wanting a class that is sort of writing and reading intensive then your are going to have a hard time. Also the teacher is never going to come to you so if you are having trouble make sure to be firm and ask questions.
One of the highlights of this course would be learning that everything you learned before regarding Atlantic history was wrong and was a lot harsher. Some things blew my mind at how bad people were treated in Africa and how exploited they were.

Advice for students:
Make sure you study vigorously and stay on top because there are a lot of reading assignments as well as writing so don't get behind. Also try your best to participate and ask questions because you get credit and it helps to better understand the material.
