Student Testimonials

“I loved this class and was sorry when it ended. I learned a lot and loved the lectures and instructors. The course was well organized, easy to follow, and staff responded promptly to questions (within a day, it seemed to me.) I took the remote proctored exams, and everything was easy to follow and worked well.” -Renee Swenson

“I am totally impressed. They provide a wealth of interesting information in a concise clear format. They have a good mix of lectures and readings that nicely covers the general early history of Western Civilization. This is an excellent MOOC well worth the time.” -Paul Hundal

This is a good, solid course for someone looking to have a brief overview of Western History, or trying to figure out what area, in particular, might interest them.
