    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Though she is a bit tough, Professor Madar is so passionate about history and you can clearly see it during lecture. She definitely shaped me into a responsible student and shifted my view of hatred to love for history.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that history very much repeats itself and gave me perspective of why the U.S. has the issues it does today and how those issues came to be such as discrimination, LGBT rights, women's rights and the list goes on.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Manage your time wisely, it's a load of work but definitely constructs your reading and writing skills.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is required for GE, while difficult I think Cotrell was a good professor in that you knew what to expect from the class and can do well if you actually keep up with the readings.

    Course highlights:

    Honestly, I don't remember what I learned a lot of it was material from previous history classes.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Learn how to read the book in an effective less time-consuming way. Actually, take notes in a way that's easy to understand later while studying. Do not sign up for the 8am lecture

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    History is a fantastic subject and I believe that we can learn a lot about our future by studying our past. There are the terrible and the great moments that the human race has experienced but it's only making for a brighter tomorrow. The world is growing as it has always done and we will learn from our mistakes.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a much more thorough understanding of the historical events both triumphs and downfalls that were necessary in the bigger scheme of things to bring the country of America to where it is now.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Exhaust yourself. There's always more to say when discussing history. Many forget that there's more than the dates, places, numbers of deaths, etc. Whenever there's action, there's a reaction, it tells a story.
