    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is eye-opening on patterns of prejudice levied against immigrants, and sheds a light on black history. My instructor for the Honors version of this course was Richard Soash, who was very engaged with the material and the students in the class. I would recommend that section for any FSU Honors students. The professor for the larger section, Pam Robbins, came in for one day to discuss German immigration. Her personality was very engaging and lively, and she demonstrated mastery of knowledge in her field. Among the students who have taken her AMH class, she has high praise.

    Course highlights:

    What I found the most interesting was studying Irish and Mexican immigration, the German-American community, and views on Chinese migrants and Lebanese immigrants in the 19th century. I found interesting parallels between the "perpetual alien" and "invader" stereotypes levied on the Chinese, and similarly worded language used on today's Muslim Americans and Muslim immigrants. There's a forgotten history where German-Americans kept the German language thriving and alive in their communities, until anti-German attitudes during World War I forced their assimilation. There's also a pattern with Mexican immigrants, that being periods where the US welcomed migrant workers and immigrants to take over a workforce depleted by wartime demands, and following periods where Mexican-Americans and Mexican immigrants were deported en masse. There is some fascinating background on Italian-Americans as well, especially regarding the actual origins and context of the mafia, and the regional differences among the Italian immigrant community.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attend office hours when you can, and start your essays as soon as possible. If your section of the class assigns movies to watch, don't blow off watching them. Material from them is integrated into course lectures and tests.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would never recommend taking Denise Spivey for a class!! She presented everything very narrow mindedly, only wanted to hear her opinion and those who agreed with her. Overall, the class was an easy A, and if that is what you are looking for... this is the class for you.

    Course highlights:

    We received extra credit when it was raining and we showed up to class. An assignment was to live tweet a movie. Really, this class is the easiest A I've ever earned.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are looking to learn, this class is not for you. Attend all class lectures, bring your laptop, do other homework.
