    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Black American History is often neglected. or little is being taught about this field in America. With this course almost everything one needs to know about the Black American History is taught. Surprisingly, not only is the Black American History taught, a touch of African and Caribbean History is studied too.

    Course highlights:

    Using the book titled "Africana Studies" by Mario Azevedo, a lot of knowledge was acquired. The highlights of this course includes: 1) Intellectual Foundations of the Black Experience 2) Peoples of African Decent and their Place in History 3) The Present and the Future of the Black World 4) Contributions of the Black World 5) Society and Values in the Black World

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to all students whether this is a requirement for your major or not. Making this class a part of the general courses required for all majors, will help society improve because it allows students to learn how to think for themselves rather than be told how and what to think.This course, at least for me, was the blueprint to success on a collegiate level.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course included explored identity. By this I mean that I was able to learn more about myself which was the catalyst to me searching for my identity. I also learned how to formulate my thoughts in a clear and concise way which gave me the confidence to be able to present my own research in other courses. Another highlight included the xenophilic feeling of having a class that felt like a community of educators. The classroom setting made me feel comfortable enough to want to share my thoughts. I learned how to be efficient with the allotted time given to me by making use of office hours, accepting constructive criticism and working with others. This course in general highlighted my skills as a college student.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Prepare yourself mentally before entering this course. As a level 100 class mainly for freshmans, many students are under the wrong impression that it will be an easy A. Don't expect this professor to repeat herself, that's what office hours are for. Read all of the articles assigned because they will be a great resource for future courses not only focused the the Black Diaspora, but these articles are vital to higher education in its entirety. Actually be an active listener and learner. Make sure you finish that class having developed a rapport with the students and the professor.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is a fun and interesting class to take. You learn something new everyday.

    Course highlights:

    My professor is the highlight of this course . Prof Smith is fun and easy to work with, he shares his extensive knowledge with his students. And when he tells stories you feel like you were there too, and that is a great feeling to have in a class like this one . It's all about history and sometimes history can be a little boring but the Prof makes it so that you want to learn more.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Even though the professor gives extensive lectures of what will be on quizzes and test, make sure that you still read the textbook and stay current with the readings!
