    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Prahl is a really hard teacher. He is extremely picky on how he wants everything, but it's understandable because it's college. He words his quizzes and exams confusingly so it makes them a little harder. Overall, I hated the class in the beginning, but now as the semester has gone on and I understand how things work with him I really enjoy the class and would take another with him.

    Course highlights:

    If you like art work or any type of art than this course is great for that! Also, if you are interested in reading old books than this is great. We read The Merchant of Venice, Utopia, The Divine Comedy and Candide.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would only suggest this course to students who are willing to work for their grade. It really takes a lot of studying and reading to do well in this course. I haven't ever read from the textbook and I've done fairly well on the exams.

    | Would not recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend taking Humanities ll with the Professor Prahl. I do not like the way he sets up his PowerPoint and it is very hard to take good notes in his class. He speaks quietly and fast.

    Course highlights:

    Through Humanities ll I learned about major political, social, religious, and economic developments contributing to the western society. This includes topics of the Renaissance, the reformation, counter-reformation, religious wars in Europe, and voyages of discovery.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice that I would give to students who are considering taking Humanities ll is to study after every class. I would also recommend attending all of the available study sessions that your college offers. You should read the textbook outside of class and review your notes frequently.
