    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study more than I did . Class goes over 3000 years in history and a lot of test.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend Doyle's class. Learned about the different oceanic historical impacts, such as the different religions, the arts/architectural styles, and literary works.

    Course highlights:

    Learning about the different cultural aspects and traditions of the Oceania's was well. We listened to different music, Doyle introduced us to the sitar! I also enjoyed the project where we had to write about a specific piece of history and I wrote about one the Hindu temples. He always prints out the powerpoints which is helpful.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Sit in the front row. Take notes in class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The instructor is very passionate and it shows in his lectures. He throws in multiple jokes and attempts to make his students welcomed in the class.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course was the field trip essay. It gave me a chance to go to the art museum. Usually I would not be able to bring myself to view art, but I learned many things and grew an appreciation for the different types of art displayed.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Save all the quizzes he hands out in the beginning of a new lesson. All tests are based on those quizzes. He gives you a due date to complete the quizzes and although they are only ten points each, they can really make or break your grade. The final is also based on those quizzes. It helped a lot to have information I could use easily.
