    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    If you are interested in archaeology this is definitely the class for you. I took this class to meet a general education requirement, an although unrelated to my major I found this class naturally interesting. This class was the perfect class to add to my schedule to find balance. I invested a smaller amount of time on this class than others during the quarter.

    Course highlights:

    This class allowed me to make general connections to the world. The preservation of history is a topic that has a lot to be discussed about. This class enlightened me on past cultures, and how our current generation's imprint on the world is important to keep in mind. w

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The lectures weren't horrible to sit through and if you take notes and keep an ear out for the list of vocals word you will do fine! There is a midterm and a final so prepare yourself before! And go to section meeting, because that is a big part of your grade.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is interesting! The professor is not boring and sections are fun. Besides, learning about human past cultures is something we should all do in order to understand cultures today.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that today is much like the past. The world and people have evolved an abundance, but culture has not. The fact that this was all learned through the analysis of material remains just blew my mind.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read all the required readings and attend lecture. It is very important if you want to succeed in the class. It is never too early to start studying for midterms or finals, the earlier the more you retain.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I thought the class would be more interesting than it turned out to be. Although Monroe is very knowledgeable on the subject, he presented the material in a boring way.

    Course highlights:

    Monroe is such a nice guy, but an inexperienced and uninspiring educator. I would strongly advise against taking his classes and furthermore he is not very good at communicating with students.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you get a great TA! There is a decent amount of work. Lectures are some times boring but doable. Throughout the quarter he also brought guest lecturers and showed videos that helped to break up the course. The midterm and final were challenging, but doable. The class wasn' t the best and it wasn't the worst.
