    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It was an extremely rewarding class. You go in depth to European history, tracing it all the way back to the bubonic plague. It is not based around memorizing dates; rather, you explore many aspects of the various periods in history, including religion, government, rebellion, art, and culture.

    Course highlights:

    You explore European history chronologically, beginning with the arrival of the Black Death in the fourteenth century, and ending with the evolution of technology and explosion of popular culture in the twenty-first century. You have seminars and debates on the relevant and sometimes controversial topics of the time. You also research art and literature for discussion boards.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is a tough course, but when you put in effort and do your part, you learn so much. Even if history has never been your favorite subject, we benefit greatly by making ourselves culturally aware and understanding the origins of problems we continue to face in modern society.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Highly recommended for multiple reasons. The course focuses on primary documents, so you get to know the history on a very deep level. Additionally, the course talks about broad trends such as globalization and mercantilism that enable you to relate different time periods to each other.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about how European countries worked with and against each other during various wars and peacetime. The frequent discussions that we had about controversial topics of the time were also very intense and rewarding.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Taking notes is optional, but I highly recommend it! When studying for tests, focus on the primary documents in the textbook, including (but not limited to!) paintings, texts, images, and diagrams.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I'd recommend the course because it gives you a higher weighted grade bump if you get an A in it. It's also easy enough if you're able to study and memorize well and doesn't require a lot of deep understanding and comprehension.

    Course highlights:

    It was very easy, the tests were multiple choice, and you got a grade bump on your GPA. I learned a lot about European history specifically instead of it just being a more general overview like in regular history classes. I learned how to synthesize several historical documents into an essay as well.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get good at memorization and studying. Flashcards on quizlet help as well. Read through the textbook with the vocabulary lists and write down your own definitions using the specific terms from the textbook so that it can help you remember much better.
