    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Sprayberry was an amazing professor with a passion for the course he taught. He reignited the fire I have for history! This is not a difficult course if you show up and listen. He doesn't require a lot, just for you to have a conversation in the class and join in discussion. Tests were straightforward essay-based questions. He really teaches the way I think a lot of people need to learn from. He makes you excited about the subject because he loves it so much.

    Course highlights:

    Everything. I learned so much more than I ever knew about a lot of moments in history, and that made it exciting. I've always loved history, and it was so fun learning more and more about it. I would go home and tell my family, in detail, about the things I learned. It was so nice to learn in the way that he taught it because he made it interesting. When the professor understands what he is teaching, it gives you the desire to learn it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Show up and listen. He lectures with slides, and he points out the particular things he wants you to know. Get the book, because he expects you to read. There are pop quizzes, but as long as you paid attention at the previous day of class and you did the reading, it is so straightforward and so hard to fail. He gives plenty of opportunity to succeed. He gives a study guide for the tests that are multiple questions that may or may not be on the test. The tests are essay questions, and he picks a couple from the study guide to include. You would really have to try to fail this class to fail it. He is an awesome professor and it's a great course.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The only reason I would not recommend this course is because his exams are set up as essays and he is a very hard grader. It is not a difficult course but be prepared for harsh grading.

    Course highlights:

    In this course I learned how different college is from high school and how much harder it gets. Professors don't help you anymore the way teachers in high school do.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always study before the exams. They are set up as essays so you really have to know what you are talking about when you answer the questions.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course, but only with this professor. I never thought history was interesting until I took this course. Professor Bowman made the material easy to understand and very interesting.

    Course highlights:

    The civil rights movement, the progressive era, and the 1920's were the highlights of this course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Manage your time. Manning your time and setting your priorities is what helps your grade.
