    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I really enjoyed this course because I learned a lot not only about black history, but gained a better understanding of Black Studies and the problems that affect folks of the community. This class does require a textbook but there are selected readings each class and they can be quite lengthy. Expect a quiz each class but typically Dr. Bascomb gave a quiz only once a week. There is also a community service requirement which accounts for 5 percent of the final grade, so it is a huge markdown if you don't do the 15 required hours. Along with that you have to write a two page reflection paper based off of given questions and also a five page research paper on a topic of your choice. There is also a final in which all the questions are short answer, but it's easier than it sounds assuming you show up to most class periods. Overall this class is quite a bit of work, but it is worth the knowledge you will gain.

    Course highlights:

    One of the things I walked a way with is the responsibility of scholars to take care of the community and share our knowledge to improve society as a whole.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings; and at the very least skim the longer articles. Don't be afraid to ask questions and join discussions. Show up to class and take notes.
