    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is one of the hardest courses I have taken at Point Loma Nazarene University, but the the professor is excellent and fair and you learn a lot.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were the skills of the professor to use humor, art, culture and all facets of the material to make it come alive. I learned a great deal about history and culture.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggest getting an early start. Make flash cards for all terms and then build from there to make sure you have detail for every topic. Attend all lectures because the exams are based from the lectures.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Ultimately, this is a required course. I took it with the professor with the reputation for being the most difficult, but in reality, the course itself is difficult regardless of who you take it with. Dr. Wood is an amazing professor. He makes the material easy to understand and is absolutely hilarious. He tells you exactly what you need to know for the quizzes and exams. If you're willing to put in the work, you'll succeed in this course.

    Course highlights:

    One of my favorite parts of this course was his off campus assignment. We were required to visit a museum and to report on it. I chose an art museum and was able to visit an exhibit on ancient China which we were learning about in class. It was a really cool experience to see real evidence and artifacts from the era as opposed to just talking about them in class. It made it all more real and definitely more interesting.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the reading. There is assigned reading for every class and the threat of a quiz every class on that specific section of the textbook. There are only about 10 throughout the semester, but he doesn't tell you when they'll be. The quizzes are an easy way to bring your grade up (or down if you choose not to do the reading). Plus, he drops your two lowest grades! Also, participate in class, it will get you some points.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I've only been in three lectures with Dr. Wood, and the way he engages students into the information makes it more exciting and easier to understand. He takes a rather boring subject, but brings that era to life as if you were really in the past.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned so far that you can take a lengthy passage about a culture in the middle east and find tons of ways to break down the whys nd hows of the way they lived their lives.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't forget to read. If you don't read you can't participate in the class discussions, and if you don't talk during class he will most likely drop your participation grade.
