    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is required, and is a ton of work. It is so much reading, and to me it wasn't interesting in anyway. The lectures were long and dry as well. But, I recommend taking Matthew Baker for discussion, he is the best. He gives really great feedback on assignments and is always there to help.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about comprehensive reading and applying it to difficult questions. We did a lot of writing in this class, which will always help improve your writing overall.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Reading is essential in this class, but if I can say anything it is to use the study guides as much as you can. They are very beneficial. Be able to summarize every thing that you read, and keep yourself organized.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The only reason why I wouldn't recommend it is because it is a lot of reading but, the reading gets interesting each time you read it along with the fact that they all apply to the real world somehow.

    Course highlights:

    I learned more through each philosophers' statements about their big ideas and dreams. Learning about them gave me more of a confidence that what I want to achieve is possible because after hearing what they had in mind, it boosted my confidence double the amount.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not skip class. I know it's really tough and there may be other classes that you have to worry about but trust me, this class actually will make you feel better and may even give you a distraction from everything going on in today's society. Now, I am not saying to go that class just to not do anything but, go in there have fun, pay attention, and after taking that final, you will be satisfied and contended with this course as much as I was!

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course will probably provide one of the most unique educational experience for most students coming out of high school. By studying history with a focus on cultural shifts rather then historical events, one is able to understand more clearly why history has been shaped the way it has. This leads to a more nuanced perspective of history and helps to make one feel compassionate for distant historical figures, by being able to understand why they did the things they did rather then just what they did.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course for me were the passionate arguments and discussions that the professor allowed us to have concerning ideologies held by various historical figures and philosophers.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to write essays before the day they are due and don't over-stress about the first few essays as the professor allows you to re-do them. Over time, you will be able to write in the way that he wants, so don't worry about how bad your essays will be at the beginning of the course. Also make sure to actually read what he assigns instead of going online to look up a summary. Firstly, sometimes the readings he assigns are so obscure that it is very hard to find a summary online, and secondly, by actually reading the assignments it is easier to write the essays and to pass the quizzes.
