    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it provides information necessary to understanding the importance of historical events. My instructor did a fantastic job at explaining the material to our class and held discussions every single day in class. This allowed us to collaborate and share different understandings of what we had read the previous night.

    Course highlights:

    Learning about the numerous effects of trading, disease, imperialism, and unity all helped me understand the complex, always advancing world that all of us inhabit. The evolution of government throughout U.S. history was also quite interesting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this class, it is crucial that students read and make annotations in the textbook or e-book they are given for the class. Being able to recall information is essential and actually being able to comprehend it is even more vital. Try to break up the text into chunks and analyze each section piece-by-piece.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is very illuminating and teaches students how to adeptly analyze history. It also teaches students about the process of historical detection and communicates that there is always more to the story. It is very good for independent students who are diligent without much prompting. However, it is very heavy in reading, which should be taken into account. Since it is actually a college course, the teacher expects students to keep themselves on track without being led through everything.

    Course highlights:

    It has been very interesting to see the art of historical detection revealed, to see how historians may interpret different facts as important or not. The course also has a rather in-depth section on the American Civil War, which I found particularly interesting. It explained how political tensions as well as racial tensions escalated very well. It also focused on how emancipation was more of a political backlash against Confederates than anything, which isn't something that is usually focused on.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Give yourself time to do the work. Reading and note-taking was very intensive and focused, and it usually took multiple hours per night. Develop a rigid note-taking system that will be thorough and easily understandable. Don't put things off until the last minute.
