Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course gave me my first F in a history course. I was not challenged well before I took this course and certainly not before I studied under Dr. Scott Hendrix. Failure is momentary and it provides opportunities to learn. Historiography and the other methodologies that I learned from this course supported my study in every other course, history, philosophy, and environmental science. Critical thinking is among the greatest gifts a teacher can give.
This was some time ago, but I do recall that the central theme of the course is historiography. That is the study of the writing of history. Be prepared to read Michele Foucault and feel very small, but just for a moment. Study something that you want to know more about, study something you don't already know the whole story to.

Advice for students:
I should have put more into my studies. When I reached a topic I would spend a few hours a week on it in addition to my other courses, but it wasn't until my senior year that truly devoted any time and energy I could spare into a project. If you find something you love to study, put your all into it.
