    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to everyone who has to take a history class because the subject is so interesting, and Dr. Ellis was extremely passionate about his work. He kept the class fresh and insightful, anybody would be lucky to have him as a professor

    Course highlights:

    I learned things about my heritage that I never knew, through the use of videos and well put together scenarios, Dr. Ellis was able to put his students in the shoes of their ancestors and feel their pain as they made their way through slavery.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Come to class, Always pay attention, do your work and talk to Dr. Ellis, he is there to help you pass! He doesn't want to fail anyone but he will if he has to.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    If you don't mind taking a 2 hour, evening long class, then this is the course for you. It's also a very easy humanities course. If you do as much work as you can and follow all instructions to the letter, you'll definitely get an A!

    Course highlights:

    What I gained from this course was the knowledge to understand that in college you halve to follow your professors instructions to the T and that even the slightest deviation from said instructions will cost easy points off of your letter grade.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    For Dr. Dawson, the only study tips you need is to simply know your information before you get on stage with your group. Each group member has a part to play and you as a student not knowing the information for your topic can cost your team points on your group presentation.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you can actually take the time and follow his instructions and doing his assignments, you will end up learning much more than you know and pass the class. The first few exam/assignments may end up scaring you, just like it scared me, but you will end up getting used to it and get better for the next time. Truthfully, all you need to receive an 'A' in this class is a little effort; this means dedicating 3-4 hours to his class.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, I've learned to look at things in a different perspective and have actually felt the need to help others improve themselves. The assignments he gave us helped us learn a different African-American history that was taught to us in regular secondary institutionalized classes. The highlight of the course might be a bit different than yours because of the presidential elections; being an African-American History teacher, this 2016 election was a nightmare but it made the class much more interactive and interesting. It helped show character of each student in the class in a way.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Taking the time to study on your own is crucial because it is true that he doesn't go over much of the slides because his lectures are generally connected to current events. P.S. He comes to class everyday ecstatic and loud because he really cares about what he is teaching so for you to actually get involved and speak to him after/before class, really does make a difference. DON'T CHEAT YOUR ANCESTORS
