    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for anybody who has any interest in world history! There is a lot of information covered in a short amount of time!

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of basic European history in this course that I had never had a chance to learn. It allowed me to thoroughly flush out my interests before moving on with a Bachelors in History

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to do the reading to succeed. The professor expects you to work hard and if you read and takes notes in class you are sure to do well!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    History has always been a tough class for me. This class helped me understand what our world was like the past few decades and why the world is what it is today.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed learning about all the changes that have occurred in our world over the past few centuries. From the Boston Tea Party to the Civil War. I had always been so resistant to hear about it but Professor Schulte has a passion for history that makes you want to hear what he has to say.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of the reading. Then reread it. Take notes. Make a timeline. Study as much as you can. If you are lost or need help, reach out to the professor or other students as it is easy to fall behind.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Jackson is a fantastic teacher, and makes learning the same old US history fun and gives a unique perspective to things we have been learning from an early age.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the roles of women in some of our most significant history. I also learned how gender has played into our perspectives on US history. I've also learned how to differ between primary and secondary sources, and how to write a solid thesis.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Start your papers when she gives you the assignment sheet. Definitely not a class you want to procrastinate in. Take good notes during her lecture, don't just copy the power point, add some of what she says, it will make your papers better and the tests easier.
