    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is both engaging and rewarding to anyone pursuing a degree in Asian studies or International Business. My professor Michael Neulander has a passion for his subject and making the lectures enjoyable by presenting history as a story, rather than bulleted facts for memorization.

    Course highlights:

    I've learned much about Japan's History as well as it's neighboring countries and their culture. The class goes across many Asian countries, but I intend to work with Japan for my degree, so learning about Japan was personally the most enjoyable and rewarding aspect of it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Studying and paying attention in class, plus a vested interest and respect for the course will make this class both easier and feeling less like work. I personally began to see the class less and less like a chore and looked forward to lectures

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She gives opportunities for extra credit, and is lenient with late work if you explain to her in person that it was only late due to technical difficulties.

    Course highlights:

    We put what we learned into perspective with in-class assignments, which sound really bad at first, but if you read the chapter, or even skim over if time is an issue, you will be fine. Also, the film clips we used for some of these assignments helped to put everything together, helping me to think more deeply and clearly on what is being taught, both that day and what had previously been presented.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the work early, especially the book review. That one nearly killed my grade, but I somehow managed to do extremely well on that assignment. My only regret is that I didn't do it sooner.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Although I got an A, he is horrible. 3 projects that have vague requirements and no real life application.

    Course highlights:

    Grading is very subjective. Lecture notes focus more on pictures than content.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Only has 30% of your final grade back to you before your final.
