    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.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would strongly recommend this course for all students, especially students of color. African American studies in my opinion is a mixture of government fundementals, history, and analytical writing. You are given the chance to explore the black experience across intersections which could apply to other ethic groups aswell

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the in class discussions on the assigned readings! You are encouraged to form your own ideas and opinions through the discipline of Black Studies practiced nationwide.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My only advice to students considering this course is to keep an open mind and never be afraid to speak up.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I learned more than I could have imagined.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course is the tour we took of Auburn Avenue in Atlanta, Ga. The tour makes you come to the realization that black people created strong communities.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings! I'm serious and show up for class!
