Fall 2015 - This class was pretty easy as long as you took the time to remember everything! Its really just about names, dates, and time periods/empires. There is a lot of information in class but the TA's kinda give you the main points during discussion so that was really helpful. There was one essay and it was pretty easy! Make sure to ask your TAs for feedback because it shows youre interested and thats what GE's are all about.
Fall 2020 - I took this class as a GE. The professor was very nice and the work consisted of one weekly assignment, a final project, and a final exam (open note). All of the work, including the final project and exam was easy. My biggest grievance with this class was just my inability to stay focused. The material varied greatly from being very interesting, to pretty boring. Overall though, this was a good GE and I would recommend it. Also, the professor cracked jokes and tried to relate the material to modern events/pop culture, which was super helpful and nice.
