    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She's the least difficult among the MMW professors. Her lectures were overall decent, but I sometimes found myself falling asleep. The lectures aren't as organized as you would like them to be but if you pay attention to the syllabus you won't have much trouble.

    Course highlights:

    Making of the Modern World is probably one of the hardest series of courses offered at UCSD. MMW11 focuses on the origins of mankind and the philosophies it has generated. Just try to keep up with the reading! Wish you luck

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the reading. I can't stress this enough. Do the reading. And also make flashcards. Make study guides and briefs of the reading. Don't miss class and get to know your TA.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend taking this course with Professor Jordan! He has a very different teaching style that many students I know loved in comparison to other MMW teachers. Overall, Professor Jordan is truly passionate about the material he teaches and it really helps to keep students involved during class.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this class was definitely the extra credit trip I took to Balboa Park and going to the Museum of Man! While there we got to see artifacts that we had studied in class weeks prior.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of all of the readings! It gets to be pretty difficult when it is Week 10 and you haven't read since the midterm in Week 5!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    At UCSD if you are in ERC, this is your first GE class to graduate. Take Herbst if you can, the man is an incredible professor. This course covers the beginning of history as we know it in several locations around the world, and how those histories develop simultaneously. First of a 5 part requirement.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a great amount about the ancient Greeks, Chinese, Indians, and other groups as a result of this course. This honestly reinspired me to go for a History major.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings and show up to class. Talk to the professor and learn alot more. Easy as that.
