HIST 1001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Larsen genuinely cares about teaching his students. With no effort anyone can get at least a B. His exams are take home essays, just take notes and you should do fine. The way to get an A is by making a BS argument about the information you got from lecture on the essays. Also, there is a term paper done in stages.

Hist 1001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Larsons lecture was pretty much the same every single day, just him sitting in front talking. All of the grading is done by the TA's so it could vary depending on who you get. the class is pretty dull and attendance is mandatory but if you put the time in it is an easy A.

HIST 1001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: B

Dr. Larsen was extremely helpful when you visit to his office hours. He is a strict grader on take home tests but his class is easy to follow and SUPER interesting. This course is nothing like high school history course, he makes it actually interesting. Good professor, good class, recommend.

I lovee Dr. Larsen, such a good guy. Makes 1001 so interesting. Both classes have 3 papers (3-4 pages) and a term paper. Easy to understand the material.

HIST 1001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I usually hate history, but I looked forward to going to this class. All of the tests are take home essays and are simple to write if you take good notes/pay attention in class. Just make sure to read the handouts prior to class because class is focused around the discussion of them. Make sure to participate a lot! Overall interesting class!

HIST 1001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He is a strange guy. He is very enthusiastic and interested in history and what he is talking about. Attendance is mandatory and taken every class. A lot of reading. No tests/quizzes. You have 4 papers and participation that make up your grade. He is a fun guy but the whole class is him just talking. I would recommend him.

HIST 1001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Larsen is a good guy with high expectations. He knows his stuff and communicates it well. He will absolutely drop your grade for every class you miss, I know from experience. Still, I learned a ton from him and he absolutely loves what he's teaching. That makes it easier to learn from him for sure.

The class is pretty fun. All the exams are essays, which is pretty nice. Larsen makes lectures interesting, and a third of the grade is participation. You play a French Revolution game that is pretty cool for like a fourth of the class.

HIST 1002 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

However, this class is very writing intensive and your grade depends on good writing skills. He is also a stickler on attendance. In the syllabus it says you get grade penalties for missing three classes and you may think it wont be big but it will! A whole letter and a half will be dropped if you miss more than three.

HIST1002 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

By far my favorite first semester class. He is an extremely smart person, and knows EVERYTHING about history. He was able to answer almost every question with clarity and good background info. I never missed a lecture, because I never wanted to. Loved going to this class and would take again if I could. Don't take if you aren't a strong writer
