    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Robbins is a very entertaining lecturer. However, her power-points consist of bullet points so it's important to take clear notes. She only gives a midterm and a final, so make sure to go to office hours before the exams.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about different laws the US had throughout the years that discriminated against people of different races and ethnicities. Robbins made learning fun.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Type your notes on your computer in class and then rewrite them when you get back from class. Make flashcards whenever you can and look up quizlets to help see what others are studying. Study for the exams two weeks prior.

    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.
