    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course invigorated my love for History! Professor Peterson's lectures were engaging and hilarious which really kept me engaged in the class. All of our assignments and expectations were clearer outlined at the beginning of the term and stayed true the entire course. We frequently integrated historical documents and films along with our lectures and textbook learning which gave us a broad scope of the time period we were learning about. Overall, it was vigorous and very thorough, yet thoroughly engaging and interesting. I would highly recommend this course.

    Course highlights:

    The time period we studied was from colonization onward to the beginning of the Civil War. We focused mostly on the social, political, economic, and societal influences and changes of the times, as well as prominent figures, dates, and events. The essays always intended to help us analyze and think in different ways above just the surface level, which was very helpful conceptually. I think the most rewarding concept I learned from this class, however, was the fact that history is anything but black and white, like we're used to generalizing. There are no good guys and bad guys; there are just people, a mix of both. That made this course very humanizing in a real way that made it easier for me to connect.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely to take lecture notes. Those were my landline the entire course. Write down dates, and ask him those specific dates because they will pop up on both the midterm and the final. Don't try to cram right before the test. You have no idea what's going to be on it, and neither does he until the day of, so make sure you study everything to the same extent. Conceptual ideas are sometimes more important than the details and facts. The work is time consuming, but if you get into history, the time goes by fast.
