    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course involves you to think about the history of the world and how actions and decisions of one generation leads to incline or decline of the next. Instead of focusing on each time period directly, you get to focus on why society changed the way it did and what actions will contribute to the next change.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, not only do you go over events but you uncover the ideas and reasons people thought the way they did. My favorite part of this course was looking at the art from different time periods and examining the way it changed over time.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course isn't that hard, but it is one that you will have to study for. I do not recommend missing any classes. You'll need to be there for note taking or you'll be completely lost. Take good notes, and if you don't feel you take adequate notes then ask your professor! They are very understanding. Study your notes. Don't memorize them but know them because you'll need to know chronological order and important people.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Irvin is one of the first professors that I'll ever have, but he'll always be one of my favorites. His method of teaching is funny, witty, and educational. I never thought I'd be interested in history the way that I am now. I just signed of for his Western Civ II class today!

    Course highlights:

    I have learned and retained more information about history in the past two months than the past 10 years. Being able to speak about ancient civilizations off of the top of my head is something that I am most appreciative of.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to come to class. The discussions are what help in retaining the knowledge.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a great start to your college career, even while you are still in high school!

    Course highlights:

    I learned much about the history of America that I had never been taught before. This class teaches not only the events that took place, but also the reasoning behind them.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just make sure you pay attention to the lectures and take notes. Prepare at least a week before each exam!
