    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It helps you give you basic concepts on centuries of history that happened a long time ago. It does gets a little repetitive if knowing eras like the Renaissance or The Cold War you might remember back in high school, but the research papers get me more interested to certain specific topics I did not even know existed.

    Course highlights:

    Learning the basic concepts of western civilization history from the early fifteenth century all the way to the nineties. From Martin Luther to the fall of the Soviet Union, this course gives an excellent understanding how and why certain societies became what they are.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's always important to study in a smarter and sufficient way than just studying in a harder like studying in a studying for about ten hours. Finding alternative ways to study can help you prevent the repetitive studying habits you been getting since you started studying in the first place.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    You will DEFINITELY learn something in this course. We covered so many time periods, and the exams are entirely written.

    Course highlights:

    The teacher is always there to help and re-explain anything you didn't understand the first time. My favorite thing to learn about was all the wars.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention, make sure you get the notes, and ask questions! Review what the lecture was on after every class to really help the information stick.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Harkins really adores what he teaches. His pure excitement in the lessons make the class so much more interesting to be in. Personally, I also loved that Dr. Harkins was willing to help you out in any way he could if you were willing to ask for the help and take the time.

    Course highlights:

    The class taught world history. It was everything from Europe, to Russia, to even Central America. We discuss the culture, society, and the people themselves from around the world.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared. You need to take notes, and always be open with Dr. Harkins. He is willing to be there for you if you allow him to be.
