    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Oliva-Fiori is SO passionate about Latin America. She makes the course interesting and keeps you wanting to learn more. Through the videos she shows and the discussion posts she has you participate in, you learn so much.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much in this course. I learned that Latin America is a real place with real people. I learned about some of the hardships people in Latin America have gone through, I learned about their culture, their lives, and so much more.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    This class has a lot of work. You NEED to do it all. If you do not do the work you will not enjoy the course. Watch all of the videos all the way through, thoroughly.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you've ever wanted to expand your knowledge about the history of Mexico and South America, relative to the United States and World History, this is definitely the course for you. Professor Fiori was very friendly, very quick to respond with homework/ lecture help, and provided wonderful feedback on essays. You really get the sense that she was striving for your success.

    Course highlights:

    I gained an understanding of the struggles and the unfair treatment that many Latinos have suffered through here in the United States. On top of this, I learned more of the history of how the Europeans (specifically the Spanish), came to South America and destroyed much of the life and culture that previously existed here.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I took this course in eight weeks online, so for those taking a full 16-week course, this advice may not apply. The lectures/ assigned reading, written assignments, and discussion boards are not too difficult. However, there is at least one assignment due every single night by midnight. As long as you pace yourself, watch the assignment calendar, and get ahead on the weekends, you should have no problem succeeding.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is excellent at creating a comfortable environment for his students to learn, by encouraging participation and adding humor.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of the course include the professor helping students of various learning styles, by not only assigning textbook assignments, but also acting out characters and events as well.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attendance is mandatory, as a lot of information is presented every class. Just doing the assignments is not enough, but by participating in discussions you will be able to get maximum information.
