    He was very educated and kept my attention through the whole course. He required 2 essays which were rather simple, just make sure you follow the instructions carefully.

    He highlighted several key people and the vents during the evolution of the humanities as well as processes for certain works of art

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to read the instructions for the essays carefully. His tests are multiple choice, but be sure to read the questions carefully as well as he likes to trick his students.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    From day one no time is wasted in this class! Professor Matchette will treat you like an adult will not waste an entire first class on discussing the Syllabus. Within the first 10 minutes of class you will already be discussing topics in your selected book chapter, answering questions, and if you don't participate she WILL call on you which I love. She has a way to keep the entire class involved and this really helps you get to know your classmates as well. She is extremely understanding and kind. She does not tolerate any rudeness, cell phones, or immature behavior which I definitely appreciated because when you want to learn, you don't want people constantly talking, joking, listening to music etc. sitting behind you, its distracting. She can be strict but its always productive. She will always answer all of your questions, never ignore you when you raise your hand and stay after class to talk to you.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the expression of art from the 9th Century A.D through today. I read letters written slaves kidnapped from New Guinea and political satires written and drawn in the French Revolution. I learned how cultures all over the world dealt with war, loss, death, social change and religious freedom through art and poetry. I learned that social change and awareness was brought about through controversial artwork, where as today we have Facebook to promote or share our views or stories we want others to know.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Participate, never be afraid to ask questions. Don't be rude or talk during class. Be on time, and study for your tests. Pretty much standard for college courses, no?

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    First of all this course is a required Gen Ed. so it is required. Even though it is required it is can still be fun and interesting. It provides and interesting way of looking at the history of mankind. Going through huge empires that fall catastrophically. Learning about the large armies and their tactics when going into battle was always very interesting. Then reading from authors and stories from different time periods allows for a look into the minds of the people at that time. Not to mention this professor brought humor in to what could be a dull lecture.

    Course highlights:

    I gained knowledge of the history of mankind. Not only is this course interesting but what is taught in this class in useful in others. For example many lessons I have learned in this Humanities class I have also used in my world religions class. The professor is interesting and laid out the class very well. Everything runs smoothly and he is fair. The Professor is also available and willing to meet and easy to get a hold of.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    A student should never miss class but especially in this class. There are quizzes most days we meet but they are simple. Be ready to read because this class includes some reading. Pay attention to lectures and the books that are read for homework. The books are not required to be bought but I would recommend buying them. Most of the books can be bought online used for less than a dollar.
