    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is one of the "ucore" classes that most freshman take at WSU. This class is really interesting because it analyzes the history behind many issues that are still prevalent in society. Faunce is a great professor and his lectures are really interesting and engaging. It makes it easy to pay attention and participate in the class.

    Course highlights:

    Some issues covered in this course, were water crisis, gender equality, drug trade, economic systems, and israeli-Palestinian conflict. All of the issues are relavent to current global events, and learning about the roots and past triggers give me a better understanding and perspective on allot of controversial issues id never really though of before. My favorite was the unit on drug trade, it as really interesting to learn about a market that is centuries old and how it influenced so many systems in place to date.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Several professors teach this course, Faunce requires attendance. If you have more then 3 unexcused absences he will dock your grade,but he is pretty near standing and as long as you shoot him an email before hand saying you are sick or explaining your situation, he will usually excuse it. Writing notes is a huge must because all of that information will be the most useful when riting papers. There's not really any studying or tests, just stay up to date with the reading and and writing assignments and you should be set.

    Because you are writing a research paper, do not wait till the last minute to research your topic and do not be afraid to ask for help from your professor.
