    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course gives an interesting overview on California history, from its time under Spanish and Mexican rule to its involvement in the Civil Rights and Anti-War movements of the 1960's and 70's. More importantly, Professor Sigmon presents the information in a very accessible and interesting manner and engages with every student as much as he possibly can. In all, this is a very solid class to take if one is interested in California History.

    Course highlights:

    The real highlight was the insight into the actions of Californians to native peoples. While the cruelty towards Native Americans in the east and mid-west is mentioned, the near genocide of California's natives is generally brushed over in most U.S. History classes. This part of the class may be grim, but it is important to understand that the history of California was not simply a gold rush and agriculture.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class, take notes, and read the assigned readings. The information is very accessible, both via lecture and through readings, and Professor Sigmon does provide study guides and lecture topics so no one misses the important facts of a particular day.
