    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Course offered insight to the less-told side of American history and taught me about the accomplishments and contributions of women over the centuries.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how hard it is and always has been for girls and women growing up in a male-dominated society and how they've broke through barriers in social norms.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't miss class, take notes, and do the reading. If you can do that, then you'll be able to enjoy the course and learn a lot.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It's so much more than a class about feminism and women's empowerment. It is an eye-opening course that also touches on men's perspectives and social issues today, at least under Professor Herrera Thomas' teaching. I would highly recommend it to anybody!!

    Course highlights:

    I have never engaged in any other class as much as I have in this one. The class discussions are very relevant to today, and I've learned things that have never been written in a history book. Everything in this class is honestly a highlight because everything discussed is so raw and important.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just come in with an open mind. You may not agree with everything being discussed, but just be open to changing your mind and listening to other people's opinions.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend Professor Smith as your History 101 lecturer. He relates his lectures to current events. He makes sure the information in his PowerPoints are conveyed in a way where it's easy to grasp. He doesn't use huge words that you don't understand. MAKE SURE you are following his lectures with the reading. He understands that books are expensive, so the book he follows is about $20, or less, on Amazon. He makes himself available during office hours. If you don't understand something, please ask questions in the beginning of the class or during office hours because he's definitely available. His test were extremely easy if you read and followed the notes. Overall, Professor Smith is a really nice and cool guy. I do recommend people to take his class if you need a History 101 class.

    Course highlights:

    While taking this course, you gain an perspective from all ethnicities for why certain things are the way they are. The professor challenges your daily thinking of principles we taught at a young age. For example, where did the idea white privilege originate? or why is there a huge division between the Hispanic community and Black communities? This course thought me the real reason to why the Civil War began. It also thought me how contradictory the founding fathers were. It taught me that Caucasians understand the struggles that Asian, Hispanics, and Blacks endure, but because it doesn't impede on their livelihood they don't care to do anything about it. (i.e. slavery) Overall, the class caused me to step out of my own self and place myself in a person within a specific time period to understand their mindset. Through that, I gained a better understanding for why things are the way they are presently.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Advice... I recommend that you leave your social, political, economical, and personal opinions at home. Be very open to the readings and the explanations to why things happened within that time period. Their mindset in the 1600's weren't similar to how diverse we are presently. Give yourself about two hours to read a chapter. A little bit daily will definitely help you. For the test, you cannot cram. It's best to start studying a week ahead of the test.
