    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Well not only does it fill out a lot of required GE's, it goes through many different subjects and lecturers. So if you do not like one lecturer, wait a couple weeks and you hopefully get a better one. Most of the readings are interesting albeit there is a lot of reading. Discussions are more open since people are from different majors and analysis based compared to review. I highly recommend if you are interested in analyzing various humanities subjects and its main theme which changes every 4 years.

    Course highlights:

    The various topics we learned about in this class was Rome, neoclassical painters and enlightenment thinkers, and the mixing of cultures known as borderlands. A major theme I learned is that there are always multiple definitions to something. A highlight from the course is that we analyze many different form of art. We analyze literature, paintings, and movies. We watched The Revenant on a projector.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay ahead in the reading. Go to Office hours to help develop your writing assignments, it especially helped me for my blog. Study in groups, because it is easy to forgot certain details from lectures and readings.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend because it is a challenging class but I feel it better prepares you for what college assignments are supposed to be.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the different empires and the ruins the became of at the fall of the empire. We have talked about Rousseau and his critiques about the way humans do the things the do.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Review material and do the assignments assigned and ask many questions.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Only basketball and volleyball are popular at all, and even then not very well-attended except for a few hyped games. School spirit isn't a very big part of UCI. Athletic facilities are great, though. We have a huge, really nice gym that apparently Kobe uses.

    Course highlights:

    Although I had wanted to go to school somewhere different, NorCal or out of state, I chose UCI for my specific program and for the benefits of living closer, being in the campus wide honors program, and also being near the beach.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In the school of humanities classes are generally smaller and pretty well-taught so I am happy with my studies. There are a lot of student organizations but the overall vibe of Irvine is a bit sleepy.Basic safety measures should be taken (as common sense).
