    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Do the work they tell you to do and read over all the notes.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was taken during study abroad in Valencia, Spain which really allowed what we were studying to come to life. Valencia is an old city, so half of our class time was spent in the various archeological sites throughout the city.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course were visiting the National Archeology Museum in Madrid, seeing the entire structure of the Roman baths still intact in Valencia and classifying human bones from a recent archeological dig that had yet to be published. I learned about the ancient civilizations that occupied Spain over the course of 2,000 years.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take lots of notes during lecture and pay attention during your site visits because you will be tested on them later.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I took this class to fulfill a science credit, and it has nothing to do with my major. That being said, I did have in interest in learning more about archeology as it always seemed like an interesting field. Little did I know that I would be putting far more time and effort simply trying to maintain a low B average in that class than I would be in any of the classes for my major. To the point where I would find myself neglecting assignments for classes required for my major until the last minute simply to put a couple extra hours into studying for archeology. Would not recommend taking this course, unless of course you are an archeology/anthropology majaor.

    Course highlights:

    This course did teach me about how archeologists are able to learn about the past from seemingly trivial artifacts and about the level of analysis required for even the most basic archeological digs.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to read a lot and study even more. Although there are some classes you can get away with not reading the textbook, this class is certainly not one of them as you will often be tested on information not covered in the lectures.
