    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    In high school, I did not have any interest in social studies but I loved this course and it gave me a different opinion on social history. This class isn't about historical events but the families that endured such times in history. I learned so much that I did not previously know and would have never known without taking this course. After completing this course, I can honestly say that I enjoy some history, for a change.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of FCS 112 was the whole course in general. This course offered a different perspective on history and allowed me to learn much more interesting topics and allowed me to change my opinion on history. One learns about their own family history in this course along with famous families throughout history. I highly recommend this course, especially to those who do not hold an interest in history.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    advice that I would give to anyone taking this course is to attend as much class as possible and take good notes. Also, reading the book is slightly important for exam questions.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was a quality Gen. Ed. Having little prior interest in studying the evolution of the American family, Combes actually made the subject pretty interesting. She allows the class to choose how the 500 total points for the semester will be budgeted among tests, homework, final, etc. Almost the entire class is based on writing a few long, but simple essays and a few exams.

    Course highlights:

    As I mentioned previously, I had little prior interest in learning about the growth of the American family before this class, but ended up enjoying the material. We studied norms and myths of American families from the birth of America until the WWII era. As you may have assumed, the material became more and more interesting as we studied more recent eras.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    #1 Tip: Take solid notes. Ms. Combes does not have notes prepared for students in her lectures, but her lectures are clear enough for you to take quality notes. She allows students to bring their laptop and take notes, which I recommend as opposed to pen and paper because she tends to bounce around a bit. As long as you understand her key ideas, you'll be golden for the test.
