    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The instructor does a very great job on using exercises to engage the students. These exercises do a great job of encouraging critical thinking which I find to be very interesting. there is never a dull moment in class.

    Course highlights:

    The whole class was a highlight. I learned so much about the founding in America and was specifically intrigued by the way America and its ideologies evolved. I learned a lot in this class that helps give me some perception as to where we are now as a country. I learned about the colonial process that took place plus the evolution of the young country. Very fascinating.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Engage your mind and ask questions. Any history class requires you to use your mind to ask questions. Questions are at the heart of critical thinking and will help you when writing response papers pertaining to primary sources provided in text.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it really was an amazing experience. My professor has a PhD. on Hispanic studies I believe and that made it even more interesting because we not only got the US history point of view, we also got her point of view and how the Hispanic communities were affected by it .

    Course highlights:

    This was my first history course taken in college and it really was an eye opener for me because you think you have an understanding from high school, but this course helps you to see more in depth of what was really going on in those times.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advice them to not think it's going to be a boring subject because I had that same perspective and ended up loving it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was an absolute breeze. I have a strong dislike for learning history because it doesn't interest me in the slightest but was able to pass this course with an A+

    Course highlights:

    The best part of this assignment is his recapping. He retells you what you've read and already done an assignment on but with a twist of humor that keeps you engaged.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice is to double check RateMyProfessor before considering anyone else other than this professor. His courses are also in flex, back to back so you can knock out 6 credit hours (2 courses) within the 16 weeks period.
