    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone interested in the details of Western Civilization. There are many interesting details covered in the course, from Ancient Greece to Russia. Everything is encompassed through readings and documentaries, which come together in weekly quizzes and assignments.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed the tactical descriptions of many different well-known occurrences in history, such as the war between Persia and Greece. It also summed up the development of Western cultures and detailed much of the European conflicts.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read all of the instructions given for the week. There is an assignment each week, but sometimes they don't show up. If one doesn't appear in the course, contact the instructor. The points will be docked if the assignment isn't completed despite it not having shown up.
