    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend him as a professor if you are interested in the subject of Africa and like to gain a lot of information in his lectures. I wouldn't recommend him based on his methods of lecturing. They tend to be a bit dry and he doesn't spice up his presentations that often. Lots of guest speakers and only 3 take-home essays for the entire semester. If you don't like reading, I wouldn't necessarily recommend this course because there is a good amount of reading per week for discussion sections.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to write 6-7 page essays with relative ease and learned that I may want to minor in some sort of history. I learned a lot of outside perspectives about the current issues Africa faces and overall gained a more liberal view of certain global issues. I learned a lot about African history that I hadn't known before.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I highly recommend going to all the lectures. Even though they are boring most of the time, the information given during lectures are reflected in the take-home assignments that are given throughout the semester.
