    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Made me fall in love with the geography major here at Mason! Professor Ward was an incredible voice and always there to help out either during office hours or in class. I struggled through most of my classes my first semester but this was where I found my passion and what really interested me. A great class for the global understanding credit!

    Course highlights:

    Professor Ward was an absolute delight! I came to class every week with a smile on my face, something you'll rarely get to see before noon. As long as you take good notes and study his guides for the exams you'll have no problem acing the class. We learned about all the regions of the world (except Asia due to time constraints :/) and with each new unit Prof. Ward tried his best to make the class immersed in the culture by sharing photos from his own trips and playing music before class.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study groups worked out great for me, we'd meet up at Northern Neck Starbucks or the library and I'd bring my massive stack of flashcards which I created based on the study guide Professor Ward makes 2-3 classes before each exam. The exams can be a little bit difficult, especially if you aren't great at memorizing things but with enough practice it became easier for me with each exam.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I really liked this class because Professor Kozar not only made the class interesting, he also made sure you learned a lot during each class session. He organized the class in a very organized fashion and distributed the topics in a way were it wasn't an overwhelming amount of information to study before exams.

    Course highlights:

    The class is structured so that there are only three exams (including the final) and four map quizzes. He structures it so that you learn about one region of the world at a time. I learned a lot about Europe and Africa and how the territories have changed and why certain territories are held more valuable for materials than others. Overall, you learn at least where all of the countries are placed and what their major export is for each country.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always take notes. He doesn't post any of his lectures to being in class and taking good notes is a must. Always check the book for further explanation on topics that he doesn't thoroughly explain.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    A professor with years of experience of traveling around the world shares his experiences in the most passionate way possible. With its very interesting lectures and with the added expertise of the professor, it quickly became one of my most favorite class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the environmental, social, economical, and political issues currently facing our world. We started off with weather patterns and quickly moved on to go into details about different regions in the world. There were many interesting facts about the countries we learned about. Our professor would add in his memorable memories from that specific country.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to attend each lecture since the professor doesn't post slides online. The only things you need to be successful are to take good notes and be generally interested in the subject.
