    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class to anyone that is willing to try their hardest in the class. It is a tough course and you don't know what your grade is until the last day, so if you can't handle that pressure, I wouldn't take this class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the history of the Italian Renaissance and the Protestant Reformation. You learn a lot about artworks by Michelangelo, Raphael, Titian, etc.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    GO TO THE STUDY SEMINARS. I think that is the best advice I can give. If you have a peer mentor or teachers assistant and they offer study seminars, go to them. My peer mentor made kahoots that helped me get an A in the class.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Praul is a great professor. There is a lot of coursework and reading to do in his class, but there is a method to his madness. He grades very generously and the final can only help your grade.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to study more and how to take effective notes.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings. Get it done early and do not put it off. Study hard and set a side time to study for this specific class.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a lot of work but stick it out! At the end he doesn't make you do that much work because you already made it that far into the semester. You learn a lot. READ the book.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of useful information about our past.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    None of the humanities classes are going to be easy. If you put the work in it will be fine. Read the books and go to study sessions.
