    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great course to take if you like few tests and more essays. In his course we were required to write two essays, one was considered the final exam. The essay replacing a traditional final exam was helpful since I had one less thing to worry about during finals week. You're even free to complete well ahead of time and encouraged to visit his office hours for advice on your paper.

    Course highlights:

    His style of lecturing is different than the other Professors I've had in the past, it is as though he is telling a story of past historical events.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not procrastinate on the essays, they are worth as much as a test grade, sometimes even more, considering the final.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was wonderful! Easy to understand course layout. Fantastic material and presentation. No tricky tests, and only one essay. As long as you showed up to class and paid attention there was no way to not get the information needed to succeed. On multiple occasions Professor Stith would be lecturing about something and then make mention that it was happening right here in Tyler Texas, and it would take me 15 seconds to realize I was still in Tyler and not 150 years ago in wherever he was lecturing about.

    Course highlights:

    A better understanding of what it means to study history. So often we think that history is just ready dusty books and in reality history is alive-- history is right now. Professor Stith really drove that idea home. Moreover his class was the first book report I had to do in college and it taught me how to do that properly in a way that had very few limitations or unreasonable requirements. Read the book and write an essay about any element of the book that was important.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Show up to his class. He doesn't really use a textbook so if you miss a day you really miss a lot.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Carter was very thorough when teaching, and she made sure students understood what they would be tested over. She made class engaging by changing things up by showing us videos or having a class mostly dedicated to reviewing previous subjects.

    Course highlights:

    I definitely learned more about history in this class. I normally don't do very well or care much for history, but Professor Carter made sure there was a way that everyone could understand and fully learn what she was teaching on.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the review!! It may be vague, but sometimes vague is good enough.
