    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a very informative and powerful course. It involves a lot of hard work, hours and dedication in order to succeed in this program. The material taught is in depth and interesting, although very hard core and fast paced.

    Course highlights:

    In my experience in this program I learned a lot more depth on wars like the Cold War and World Wars 1 and 2, as well as reasoning behind it and how to prevent it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay focus, read a lot, pay attention and no matter how useless the assignment might sound, do it because in the end it is your knowledge your gain.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course is challenging, but fun. The teacher makes learning of the history entertaining and concentrates on completion of lower quantity of projects of a higher quality. He also considers multiple perspectives about the historical events.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned much about both world wars and the Cold War. I have done much research on my own, which reinforced the material learned in class.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Turn everything in on time by starting the projects the day they were assigned. Always keep track of deadlies and do not forget to do a comprehensive research.
