Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course if you're a great self starter or if you're looking for a class where you never need to actually show up. It's a great course if you're really interested in researching something in depth. I think I would have gotten a lot more out of this course if I had the time to dedicate. I wouldn't recommend this course if you're busy and/or don't care about the topic you choose. You are required to write a minimum 20 page research paper - if you don't feel like that's something you're interested in or could handle, I'd steer away. Since it's all you work on all semester, Kenney has high expectations.
Highlights: creating my own schedule. Lowlights: writing an in depth 20 page research paper about the history of the toilet. I learned a lot about the history of the toilet. (My topic of choice)
Hours per week:
Advice for students:
Make sure you choose a topic with a lot of history and that you actually care about the topic you choose.
