    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great course that dives into US History in a fun, interesting, and critical way! I highly recommend taking this class as a freshman. It's a nice transition from high school to college courses.

    Course highlights:

    I gained the ability to read quickly and think critically. Mark Summers is a great professor who nudges students to think analytically about the familiar material.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read! It's important to be well-versed in the information to do well on the exams.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Super interesting course and easy workload. It can serve as a core class and Dr. Gown always has great TA's. The exams are set up exactly the same every time and she gives study guides out prior to them. She grades extremely fairly and definitely isn't hard on grammar or anything like that. You have two read two books for the class but they are super short and a good read (usually you've already read at least one of them in highschool). You won't regret taking this class.

    Course highlights:

    All homework (little quizzes) are on canvas and you have to do a reading to answer them. You can just search the page for key words, so you don't have to read an entire (very long chapter). You also get a second chance on the homework quizzes and she drops your lowest grade if I remember correctly. In this class you'll learn things about America during the 1900s. Very simple and entertaining stuff.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    You can find study guides for the exam on sites like this. It takes a bit of time to create them on your own so I would recommend unlocking them on here. Talk in your recitation because your TA is the one who does the majority of the grading. If you participate in recitation, it'll really be beneficial to your grade.
