    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a very interesting, well paced course that gives good insight to precolonial America that leads up to the civil war. The course starts off in Europe and focuses the interactions between Spain and Britain, primarily through trade and war. Then the course goes across the Atlantic and focuses on colonization; how the natives were treated, what happened, were they successful, etc. It continues in the colonies until the creation of the United States.

    Course highlights:

    One of the things that i gained was the emphasis on reading. The lectures go hand in hand with the reading, and if you dont read, then you wont get the most out of the lecture because the professor is constantly referencing and talking about themes and ideas in the books and primary sources. Some of the course highlights were discussing the differences between the British, French, and Dutch colonies, the religious differences (Catholicism, Puritanism, Anglicism, etc), and the economic growth and viability of the colonies.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all of the reading for the class including the primary sources and go to lecture. The class will be very challenging if you only focus on one of these items because they go hand in hand with each other. I would also suggest participating and actively joining the discussion in your section class because that gives you the opportunity to discuss the ideas and get a better grasp at the ideas.
