    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is extremely challenging and informative. The professor interacts well and is willing to stop and clarify to ensure a full understanding of what she is teaching. The subject material is fascinating, and overall the class will leave you with a feeling of satisfaction that you have worked hard to achieve your best marks.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite parts were the philosophy and the roots of modern religion units. While difficult to conceive at first, the proposed theories of creation and the events leading up to spiritual evolution were entertaining and worth the struggle to comprehend.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take as many notes as possible. The book is required reading material, but you can receive satisfactory grades based on lecture material alone. Keep up with the discussion boards, and read as many of them as you can. Not only will she grade you based on your responses, but she wants you to interact and discuss with the rest of the class. These are also a really good information source, as students post replies influenced by everything from the book to online articles.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was tough, but definitely worth the time taken. Western Civ 1 is a survey of history from the beginning of recorded history until the 17th Century, but with an emphasis on the global impact of Western society and civilization. This professor follows a strict outline which makes taking notes incredibly simple, and his tests are structured 100% from the class notes.

    Course highlights:

    We definitely spent a huge amount of time on the early Mesopotamians, Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans, and also a great deal of time on the Roman Catholic Church and early to mid Renaissance. This course was extremely thorough, in all aspects of the history involved, and I feel like the knowledge gained was well worth the time and energy expended on my part.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You MUST TAKE ALL OF THE NOTES. If you miss any of the details, you won't have enough of the points he's looking for when you write the essay on any of the three exams. All he really looks for is the inclusion of all of the pertinent points he gives you in class, so if you miss any of them and don't ask a fellow classmate, you're screwed. Also, you really don't need the history book because he teaches more in-depth than the book.
