    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    American Indian history is an important issue that I believe all students studying in the U.S. should take. Professor Svingen makes this a fascinating and thorough venture. There is a great deal of reading involved and he has a high standard for quality on writing assignments. But if you dedicate yourself and do the work, you will learn a great deal of useful information from a very experienced instructor.

    Course highlights:

    I learned: which areas of North America were settled by various colonists, including the English, French, and Spanish. Characteristics and geographic locations of various tribes. The unfolding of precontact to post-contact events. Civil rights and other social issues that were crucial during the twentieth century.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely take it if you want to learn about this topic. This is not an "easy A" or "filler" course. You must own all required reading materials; there are several, but individually they are not too expensive. Plan to spend at least 4 hours per week on writing, 3-4 on required reading, and 4-5 on research.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course opens up the mind and perspective of how the live of the Native Americans have been discriminated towards back in the from the colonization of North America to present time. The professor does and excellent job explaining the lives of these discriminated people.

    Course highlights:

    I learned many thing while in the course, but the topic that stuck in my head was the movement in which the young Native American Student of the time had made a push towards taking over, the then abandoned Alcatraz Island. Especially moment in which they had sent a letter to the US government stating that since the island was inhabitable, abandoned and lacked any resources for improvement it clearly matched all the other descriptions of the Native Territories the government had set for them. So since Alcatraz perfectly matched the description the 'took over in the name of exploration'.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are considering the course, let me be your confirmation to take it. It is an amazing course to take with an outstanding amount of interesting facts and topics that are to be learned. Be prepared with an open mind and perspective to fully induce yourself in what the lives of these Native Americans would have been like, and be prepared to learn some things that you have never thought would have ever happened.
