    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    In both lecture and book, you learn things about history you have probably not learned before from a passionate professor, whom also loves cats.

    The Vanderbilts and the lady who divorced a man after he built her a house. The Crusade that included children who got on a boat and died. Black Plague

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book. There is some interesting facts in there, like how the Aztec streets ran with blood and soldiers stepped on bodies of the dead.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is perfect for the student who doesn't perform well on tests but knows the topics. This course requires you to write a series of short paragraphs to explain the knowledge that you have gained on a topic.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that there is no right way to teach a course. There is a lot more to learning a topic than just being able to pass the test.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always complete the out of class readings. The are very short, ans the 15 minutes of work will pay off.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Parkinson knows his history. Of course, yes, he went to college to study and eventually teach history, but he goes highly into depth when teaching in lectures. He does give a decent amount of quizzes over the lectures, but if you pay attention in class, you will hear every single answer to the quizzes; I wish I would have known that before taking the first quiz. Of course, sitting in an hour and fifteen minute lecture can be tiring, but it is definitely worth it because Dr. Parkinson makes it fun to learn.

    Course highlights:

    I learned much more than I thought I would about periods of time that were skipped over in high school history classes. Dr. Parkinson made the lectures interesting by offering downloadable outlines on the school website and actually allowing time for questions about the content. Yes, Dr. Parkinson is more on the stricter side, but he allows us to learn more efficiently this way and helps us have higher final grades.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class and actually study for the exams. I made the mistake of procrastinating studying for this class until the night or two before the exam was due. That was definitely shown in my grade afterwards. Therefore, my advice to students who are considering this course, please study and stay off your phone for the lectures, although I know it might be hard. It will be worth it in the end and your GPA will thank you.
