    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The course was taught at the Florence campus. It focused on the history of the Medici family and their role in Renaissance Florence. The professor was enthusiastic about the topic and provided numerous writing resources for topics such as proper citation, database research, and outside sources on topics taught in class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a vast amount about Renaissance Florence, the city we were studying abroad in at the time. We learned a good amount of history, took class trips to famous museums to see works discussed in class, as well as the Riccardi Palace. The professor made sure to return papers in a timely manner with helpful corrections and advice for future papers.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book ahead of time and take notes. Classes are focused around the required reading for the week. As long as you keep up with the reading the workload is simple. Also, do not be afraid to branch out to other related topics in your papers. Making connections from other classes to the novel can earn better paper grades and make class discussions more intriguing.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Excellent course where students receive basic writing advice and learn how to apply proper grammar concepts to analytical pieces.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that participation is important and sometimes count more than a professor may say.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggest writing papers in advance and getting them peer-reviewed or peer-edited to ensure that there are minimal grammar errors and that the paper flows nicely.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Class was easy because there wasn't much going on, participation wasn't necessary. The papers were challenging though.

    Course highlights:

    We didn't learn too much. All we do is spend the whole class talking about the reading we were supposed to do. We would have small homework assignments once a week and a major writing assignment every 3 or 4 weeks.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Come in with a positive mindset and a laptop in order to take notes and start work early during class. Be productive with class time.
