    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    You really do learn a lot! History doesn't have to be your favorite subject to enjoy this class.

    Course highlights:

    You learn a lot about culture. Whitmarsh is really good about explaining things by relating it back to modern time or silly stories to help you remember.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    When it comes to the weekly quizzes, be sure to read the paragraphs surrounding it that talk about the literature he assigns, this is what he really test on (especially phrases and words in those paragraphs) Also, take notes on the picture slides he puts up. Those are on the exams. He gives two paper, do them or you aren't able to take the final at the end.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class content was not bad at all. The professor was rather harsh and unkind which is why I would not recommend this course with this specific professor.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a whole lot about the history of civilization, particularly about art and culture.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to take very thorough notes in class and actually do the reading for the weekly tests. Also be sure to take notes on the art that he shows you in class because it will be in the final.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    You get to learn a lot about different civilizations, he also makes you go to a museum were you have to pick two pieces of art work to write about. He also assigns a paper about a historical person or event of your choice.

    Course highlights:

    I learned more about where we get our culture from and how different civilizations were made. I also learned a lot about the different art work that people did throughout the century's and the different people who created the art.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to do the online homework on time and to do both the quiz and the test. Also make sure to study the different art works he shows in class because they are on the midterm and on the final.
