    Renaissance and Baroque Art, Catholic and Protestant Reformation, the development of European history.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Just you and your motivation! Take notes in class. Prepare for the essay exams.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I'd definitely recommend taking HUM 212 with Prof. Givens, specifically. The way he talks about history makes for the most interesting class I believe I've ever taken. It's like a story, and he is always sure to mention the strange, gory, and lesser-known details about various historical figures and events.

    Course highlights:

    Highlight: the man with various fake noses who wore them based on the fanciness of the occasion (gold for parties, silver for intimate social gatherings, and bronze just for everyday).

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the accompanying textbook and novels he assigns! You cannot pass the exams without reading them, which he's very careful to ensure. Take extensive notes in class - my fingers were always flying across my keyboard, but it was definitely worth it.
