    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was difficult and full of reading and constant studying, however as a history major I found the content of the class to be fascinating. The professor was always engaged into the topic during lecture and provided a detailed description to this part of United States history and always answered questions to his fullest extent. He also always provided individual office hours in case of needing extra help with history or any other problem life might throw at you.

    Course highlights:

    The most interesting part about this class was learning about the civil war and its cause. All throughout my lower education it was taught praising the choices of American men, but the professor taught it truthfully at different perspective.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not save the reading for last minute, spread it out throughout the entire week. It is a lot of reading, but don't avoid this class just because of it; history requires a lot of reading in general. Also, don't be afraid to use the professors office hours, he will literally give you answers to his final and tell you exactly what you need to write about. With a little work and a lot of effort it is not hard to get an A.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Very detailed and interesting, and ventures off the beaten path of history. You will know the first 100 years of American history inside and out by the time you have finished this course.

    Course highlights:

    This course covers the time period from the American Revolution and the American Civil War. You learn about the complex roots of the War for Independence, the development of the modern political system, the rise of such world-shaking movements as women's suffrage, abolition, and the push for public education, and the surprising real reasons behind the Civil War (hint: it's not really slavery). Professor Bardell is energetic and passionate, and he makes his expectations for your coursework very clear, so there are no surprises come test day if you've been paying attention.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    KEEP UP WITH YOUR READING. There is no weekly homework, only a midterm and a final, both of which are in-class essays, but there is a TON of weekly reading that you have to know inside and out in order to pass and it snowballs very quickly. As much as I loved this class, I caused myself enormous amounts of stress by allowing myself to get behind in my reading, and it's the one thing I regret most about that semester.
