    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Everyone has to take it but I would recommend taking it with Hughes. There were only 3 assignments in the class. We had to read 2 books and write a paper on each and we wrote a family history paper at the beginning of the course which was basically asking your family members about their history. All of her test questions come from her lecture. She expects you to read in advance but not many do. Try to skim the chapters though. Overall it's your basic history class that asks you to memorize everything. Her study guides are the exact questions she asks on the test. She is a really nice professor and she isn't picky with grading papers.

    Course highlights:

    Honestly I learned a lot. We started out with colonies and which country colonized what region of the Americas and Africa and places in Asia. We discussed the slave trade, the French Revolution, the British control over India and their ultimate freedom. We discussed world wars and the African soldiers who fought for France. We watched a really sad movie about that. We also talked about communism and why the USSR didn't last. We spanned a lot of history. It was mostly European history and how European affected other continents such ands Africa and send Asia.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Plan out your answers for every question on the study guide. The test will be exactly that. If you miss class sometimes it's hard to know what was talked about and you may have to read the textbook. When you take notes, write down what she says about the slides because she will be looking for stuff like that in your test answers.
