    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because Professor Dinces does a wonderful job of combing power points and examples of present times to teach the class. He always makes sure his students understand what he is teaching by asking us to summarize what we went over in class.

    Course highlights:

    As I am still currently enrolled in this class, I would say some highlights are: the group projects he assigns. It allows us college students to get to know our classmates more and feel comfortable in the classroom.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always remember your books when going to class. He sometimes unexpectedly will have you answer questions from a reading from one of the books we are required to have.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a thought-provoking interplay of history, the present, and future. While it is important to understand basic facts of history, it is more important to be able to analyze and apply. This class might challenge you a bit, but you will be the better for it.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to apply history and use it as an essential tool in predicting outcomes of situations today. This course transforms "boring history" into a subject and class worth engaging in because it challenges you to think about the history of war, genocide, and human issues.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Listen to what Professor emphasizes. He will often repeat key ideas and ask questions about controversial issues because he expects you to be able to answer it. I would note his repetitions and questions, take it home, and spend some time engaging.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I've chosen the 8-week online course for this class. This class is amazing. The professor makes sure that you understand the course very well. Although it is online, you are required to get involved. I think that is a plus. Using the discussion board and the thoughts from my fellow students helped me better understand the course. I would admit that history is one of my weakness but this course and the professor helped me escalade that weakness and turned it into knowledge.

    Course highlights:

    While taking this course, I've learned a lot. It gave me better understanding on how the World War I started and ended. It gave me an insight on the cause and effect of World War I and the Great Depression right after. This course also helped me understand what the New Deal did to improve the economy and how it gave hope to the people during the Great Depression. Right after World War II, it enhanced that hope to fully end the Great Depression. It created new consumer culture providing each household with cars and home appliances. Homeownership also increased and therefore improved the American way of life.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Passing this class is easy when you put your time into it. Each week you are required to read the text thoroughly. I think that is given to all classes but I want to mention it anyway. You need to understand the concept and make sure you to consider the 5W's (What, Who, Why, Where, When) and the H (How). Also, you need to take notes. Memorization also helps in identifying which law had been passed and what organizational groups are involved to a specific cause. Overall, you just need to put your effort and do the readings and assignments on time.
