Not too easy. Not too difficult.
A class or subject is only as exciting as its teacher and I'm very pleased to say that Shep Broils is, hands down, the best educator I have had the privilege of knowing. Despite the incredible variety made available in this course, my favourite moments were the interactions with my teacher who consistently worked hard to make the material engaging, as well as practically applicable. Additionally, she went more than the extra mile to provide opportunities to create personalized and unique coursework around the requirements of each assignment.
I cannot recommend more highly the incredible scope and access this course provides to students! Especially given my own experience, growing up in Europe, the opportunity to learn so much about a vast range of cultural and historical milieu has proven to be invaluable both personally and professionally.

Advice for students:
If you're lucky enough to be an Honors student, by all means, ask for Shep Broyles as your teacher. In the full length of your educational and vocational experience, you will never meet or engage with a more delightful and inspiring person. Additionally, this course will provide an international perspective that will challenge your world view, and, best of all, ask you to connect the dots and, in looking at the differences, find the similarities. This is a skill for which I could not be more profoundly thankful as it has come to my aid in many professional and personal discussions, and allowed me to look for the commonalities that remedy a situation. All of this from a World Cultures course, you ask? Therein lies the value of this class!
