    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Taking this class online was a wonderful idea for myself personally. The coursework was easy and predictable, the professor is nice, and all assingments are graded quickly.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a new insight on American History thanks to the required textbook. The textbook gives many different sides of our history, and the videos the professor provides are informational and interesting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to stay up to date with assingments and to regularly check Canvas.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course for its thorough, engaging history of the early founding's of the US.

    Course highlights:

    I've gained a better understanding of the founding of the country and how that shapes the US today.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes! This is a lecture heavy course. If you are diligent about taking notes, being on time to class, and not missing a day, you will do great. Also, ask a lot of questions.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course to anyone that either loves history or needs to complete their general graduation requirements. The teacher was fantastic and engaged with students by using a combination of lecture, Canvas, and showing films/clips relevant to the course. There is however quite a bit of reading (but no textbook).

    Course highlights:

    This is a survey course, and mainly deals with the events leading up to early 1900's American history. Topics of discussion include precolonial native American societies, events leading up to European colonization of the New World, interactions between natives and early colonists, the American revolution, the Market revolution, the emergence of capitalism within the US and the consequences of its emergence. Reading material includes "Changes in the Land" (Cronon), "Forced Founders" (Holton), and "A Shopkeeper's Millennium" (Johnson).

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise that you read each book thoroughly and bookmark pages with quotes that you feel are relevant to the theme of the text. You will be required to write an essay on all three books. Those books, again, include: "Changes in the Land" (Cronon), "Forced Founders" (Holton), and "A Shopkeeper's Millennium" (Johnson).
