    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor knows what she is talking about and she covers a lot of different topics within the course. She gives example cases to go along with the concepts and as long as you do the reading and go to class the concepts are not hard to understand.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed the lectures because it is set up so that you have to actually go and learn since there are no powerpoints. There are only 9 assignments so there is not much outside homework other than reading. I have learned a lot about the forming of what is modern Europe today and how it impacted the early 20th century.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO THE READING AND GO TO CLASS. As long as you take decent notes and participate the concepts and lessons are not hard to understand! Do not think it is a blow off class, and make sure you do the document discussion questions before showing up to class for the quiz. It will literally make the quizzes into a cake walk since the quizzes are open note and open book.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Personally I would recommend this class for those who are history buffs especially for history after 1865. The course takes place from 1500 to modern day. While Professor Varga-Harris is nice she is not really knowledgeable or she just did not teach he time period of 1500-1850ish very well because her specialty is in the history of eastern Europe from the mid 1800's to present day. From that point forward she brings history to life is passionate when she teaches it because it is in her wheelhouse.

    Course highlights:

    In the class the tests were writing about different terms she covered in the different era's. The good thing about this class is that it forced you to write well and be knowledgeable on the topic. She did care how you wrote so you need to have good grammar and good spelling. Overall my writing skills also increased in this class

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    When you are doing the tests the study guide has 15 words and the tests have 8 terms and you have to write about 5 of them. The best thing to to is 2 things, try the best you can to connect all of the terms together and also try to relate everything to the best of your ability back to Russia or communism because she appreciates that.
