    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It is a great survey course for early American history. It's a good course for anyone and everyone to take, because it is super important to know about our country's past, so we can learn from our ancestors mistakes.

    Course highlights:

    The course covered everything from first contact between Native Americans and Europeans all the way to the end of Reconstruction (after the Civil War). The class looked at social, political, and cultural issues, as well as the major conflicts.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up with the readings. I've taken a lot of history classes and that is always one of my biggest issues. It is so easy to get behind on the readings and then very tricky to catch back up.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course covered interesting historical topics and centered discussions to expand the focus to a cultural understanding of all the layers of the matters at hand. You don't just memorize names and dates, but look further into why people did the things that they did and how it affected the future.

    Course highlights:

    This topic covered a multitude of subjects ranging from the african american slave trade to the American industrial revolution. The civil war and american reconstruction were heavy topics. The class did not just focus on the big picture topics, but taught smaller details that helped your understanding. For example focusing on popular songs in that period that are deconstructed to explain the era.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure if you take this class over the summer that you have ample time to devote to it. The lecture videos are a bit lengthy and it is important to get as many facts as possible for support for your weekly essay assignments. If you do not like essays and critical thinking then this is not the class for you. The class was solely made up of essay assignments that went along with reads and the lecture videos.
