    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    What makes the class is the professor, Dr. Joseph Henderson. Prior to working at Georgia Gwinnett College, he was an officer in the U.S. Army for several decades, where he helped then chart lands and make maps. That experience and passion can be seen in class, and he turned a course that may have been stale if taught by someone else into a course I thoroughly enjoyed.

    Course highlights:

    I liked how some of his assignments required us to go into the real world and see for ourselves things we were learning about in the class. A big part of the course was learning about how people organize urban and metropolitan areas, especially under the grid system. He's teach us something, then assign work that had us find real world application. It really helped us retain knowledge.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes and keep up in class. As long as you come to class and pay attention to the presentations, you should be fine. If there are things you don't understand, you can either meet with the professor after class, or doing the homework usually clears up most questions. Test aren't too hard, because his reviews are a lot like the tests.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    If you're anything like myself you need personality in a classroom along with the phenomenal teaching skills and by taking Professor James Lowry you'll get that plus some!

    Course highlights:

    Prior to the knowledge gained from this course. l was also taught how to prioritize and organize. I was not very good with neither of those but by taking his class he effortlessly instilled two great traits that I can use in my everyday life.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Guys, stay focused!! Although this was a easy class for myself. I learned it's only as easy as you will allow it. Do all your work, study for test, come to class to learn the material and you'll be FINE!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course of Human Geography may be interesting to some students; specifically those studying a major concerning the needed information given in this course but it's not a course that will be necessary for all majors. Currently, I am undeclared and the course fell under required courses to graduate but the information was extremely difficult for me to grasp due to my lack of interest. I believe many students find it difficult to understand a subject when they don't find any interest nor do they have previous experience from taking a lower level of the course beforehand. This situation definitely relates to me as an individual. Although, the information provided was difficult to adhere, I passed the course and am no longer looking back but willingly looking forward.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of taking Introduction to Human Geography was my final grade validating my passing of the course. Although, I didn't enjoy the course itself, I did find a slight interest in learning about the difference between topographic and cartographic maps.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    For all students who shall look to succeed in this course, you'll need a open mindset to learn about locations, economy, and population as well as how each of these topics relate to one another.
