    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is not super taxing nor is is super easy. It is at the right difficulty to keep you interested but not to the point where you feel insanely stressed. The teacher is amazing and he makes sure to keep you wide eyed and involved. He also knows what he is talking about and doesn't necessarily read from the slides like most teachers would.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were getting to see the real life examples that our professor took part in. He would show us pictures of where he lived while doing studies and would bring real life examples to our vocabulary we learned. From this course you learn a lot of about the statistics of the world from death, to eating habits, to social aspects, to religion, to just about anything you would want to know about the human population.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course you need to keep up with the online assignments, the due dates are far off but they do stack up in the end. I would also suggest paying attention tot he slides because he does not post all of them online. Most importantly study your notes, your notes are practically the test questions.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's alright, the course could have been structured a bit better. Everything felt like it didn't fit well together, especially the chapters you would study. It's weird when things seem discordant, especially when you have 3-4 chapters per exam. But that's the trade off of having a huge class, in a lecture hall I suppose, more information given to per person but less time and less ability to be able to discuss things in order to piece it together. If anything, you need to be able to put things together yourself to find the consonance.

    Course highlights:

    Well, as long as you actually study you might learn quite a bit of tidbits of human geography. You'll also learn a lot about why war might be prevalent, which is mainly caused by differences in people. You'll also learn about patterns around the globe, and why culture might be a certain way. It's an interesting class.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pretty easy if you study, which I kind of didn't but I still made a good grade in the class. Just be sure you to to lecture and take good notes. Tip, some old students made Quizlet card sets using old tests so you can get some answers for free and/or use those to study for a final exam! Be sure not to throw your old exams away.
