How much homework is in Western Civilization and Culture?

We estimate the coursework will take 5-7 hours per week. During a typical week, students complete the following:

  • 60–90 minutes of live class instruction
  • A brief, pre-recorded lecture
  • 10 – 50 pages of reading
  • A reading comprehension quiz (5 questions)
  • Depending on the topic, there will be links to music pieces and art to analyze and discuss in class.
  • Weekly discussion forum with fellow students
  • Creative or analysis-type writing assignment
Larger assignments and instructions will be included in the class syllabus.
