    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    History 7A is an introduction to the study of the pre-contact Americas and the early Spanish and Portuguese Colonial period, taking place between 1500-1700. Since my major is Biological Sciences, taking this class was a way for my mind to swerve away from all the science and explore a totally different concept, in this case learn more of how Latin American cultures and its' people came to be.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout high school we learn just the minor details about the history of the conquistadors and how the European powers wanted to extend their power overseas, but not until this course did I find a class that focused on the indigenous people whose land was being invaded, rather than that of the powerful king and the Europeans. Throughout this course we devoted special attention to the Inca, Aztec, and Maya, but also other indigenous societies with the aim of recognizing and emphasizing their diversity and varied experiences of contact with Europeans. As the course moves into the sixteenth century, it will focus on the moments of contact between European and indigenous societies, and the ways these early contacts influenced the colonial regimes that followed. Overall, being a very interesting class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared for lots of painless reading.
