Comments on the course

I'm taking the course now and I think it is more interesting than most courses at UF. You travel around the globe studying archaeology. The course is work heavy if you take it in the Summer because it is squeezed into 6 weeks but this is how Summer courses are.

Course Content

Archaeology throughout the world and how civilizations developed. A criitcal perspective on "Civilizations".

Comments on the professor

The professor is good, responsive, and generous on grading. I think he cares that you do good.

Advice

Be sure you are ready for a condensed summer course. Take notes and ssk if you need help.

Comments on the course

This course is the best I have taken at UF! I am a psychology major and it feels like the course was made for non-majors and made to relate across interests. The course was recently remade. The lectures are interesting and engaging. The class is thoughtfully made.

Course Content

The course uses alot of different assignments. I learned how to critically looking at how archaeology is produced and how history is represented.

Comments on the professor

The professor was very supportive and responsive. His lectures are fun and engaging. Sometimes it can be like he is reading from a script but that is how some online lectures are.

Advice

Know there is a moderate amount of reading and you need to study for the quizzes. However, I thought after doing that the assignments were easy.

Comments on the course

Anyone who says this course is an easy A is lying. I have been recommended this course by multiple people who said it was easy, but they must've taken it before some kind of curriculum change. The material is outdated and not useful, assignments had very very specific directions but rubrics/grading that often times directly contradicted the directions. We would have like 150 pages of reading due a week, aw well as an essay, quiz, and discussion post. Its a VERY heavy courseload, especially for the summer. The class actually caused me to have panic attacks and an actual nightmare based on it.

Course Content

The textbook is often very redundant while also being very vague about information that should really be explored in depth. Theyll spend 3 paragraphs describing the chemical properties of some kind of rock, but spend only a single sentence to talk about massive wars that destroyed an entire kingdom.

Comments on the professor

The professor didnt make the materials related to the class. THe lectures were filmed by someone else like 10 years ago. Grading took forever, which made doing assignments annoying because I had no clue if I was doing them right.

Advice

Just don't. There are plenty of other 3000 level elective you can take to fulfil gen ed requirements/anthro degree requirements.
