    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Siker is one of the most genuine and intelligent professors I have encountered at LMU. He is extremely knowledgable and helpful, however he does expect his students to put in work in his class. The material is challenging, and I do not think I would recommend it if you have very limited or no knowledge on Christianity. Only two position papers, two reading quizzes, a midterm, and a final paper, but LOTS of reading.

    Course highlights:

    If you enjoy history, you will be interested in seeing how faith and politics influence each other over time. The class is interesting, just very reading heavy, and everything you read is all very dense. If you like to skip around reading in this class, I don't recommend it for you. You don't need to exactly understand everything perfectly, but you can't just skim everything and assume you'll get an A. But I do think the class is rewarding if you put in the work.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings, ask questions, participate in class discussions, get to know Professor Siker because he's cool and can really help you

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you are not up for reading a ton of long articles about the history of Latin America or find that you are unable to read and fully understand 20 to 30 page articles per night and keep up with your other classes, then class will not be good for you because this entire class is mostly discussion, but it's based solely on the articles and research. If you do not do all of the reading, you will have a very hard time in this class.

    Course highlights:

    Always do the reading!!! She does lecture sometimes, but most of the time the class is just discussing, which is part of your grade. She is really big on participation and if you do not speak, she will call on you, and she can tell who does the reading and who doesn't. There is also a lot of writing and research to do for this class, so make sure you go to office hours because she can be very helpful if you ask for it.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to time manage well because, as I said, there is a lot of reading and it's very dense, so you can't read it the night before or right before class and expect to fully understand everything and be prepared for a discussion. If you set aside a good amount of time to read all the material and take good notes then you should be fine.
